A Baby Boy Bonnet
A good friend had her second little boy on the weekend so after contemplating what gift I could make with supplies on hand it was obvious that a little bonnet would be perfect for the upcoming summer.
After auditioning a number of fabrics from my boy stash I originally chose the "Beep Bots" fabric paired with a green and blue dot instead of the denim, but I only had a fat quarter and it's supposed to be for Lewis' superhero doll on my to do list. Since I have a fair bit of denim and beep bots and they were a great match I thought it was great to be able to reduce my stash a bit. Luckily I also had the ribbon, and the matching threads (blue on one side & green on the other)!
The pattern is available here but if you don't sew you can also buy a boy (or girls) bonnet here.
