There are four styles that have oodles of possibilities for embellishment and design! All styles can be made for a boy or a girl! Bonnet 1 has a visor for a boy and a gathered ruffle for a girl.
On the boy's bonnet you could add a matching or contrast piping and embroidery or monogramming. For the girl's bonnet I added lace on either side of the gathered fabric ruffle, which gently and sweetly wraps a baby's face.
Bonnet Style 2 is a T-bonnet that is perfect for Baby Dedication, Christening or any special occasion. I made mine in all white, but you could make these really contemporary with trendy fabrics. White on one side and a print on the other would make the bonnet usable for special occasion or everyday! Lace edging gathered or not works beautifully on this bonnet! This bonnet style also would be great to add hand or machine embroidery! I just love the added mother of pearl buttons added on the ribbon and back!
Style 3 is so precious! It features two different styles of brims. The one shown has a slight scallop. A plain rounded brim is also included in the pattern. This bonnet is just as precious as it can be! An added monogram to the back would be adorable!
This bonnet also lends itself nicely to hand or machine embroidery. This was designed for a boy, but could easily be adaptable for a girl by adding lace to the edge!
The bonnets come in 3 sizes - Small - Medium - Large, and fit newborn to 24 months. This is an ePattern and comes in PDF format. All styles shown are included in the pattern. You can order the pattern from Brer Rabbit Designs. The pattern is an instant download!
