babies in bonnets

The Peekaboo Bonnet pattern by Made by Rae is one of my very favorite patterns.  Not only is it super-adorable on the little ones, it also provides superior sun coverage.  And it is the only hat my kids can't seem to wriggle out of.


I have a few in assembly line production right now (so you'll see more soon ... like probably tomorrow), but I finished this beauty this morning and am in love with it.  It is fully reversible with piping on both sides.  I love that this pattern has such a retro feel, but with modern fabric it also looks very fresh.


The babies look extra yummy-squishy with their chubb-o cheeks peeking out of that wide brim.  I can't tell you how many comments I get when my girls wear these bonnets.  They are irresistible!


This bonnet went to our friend, baby Elle.  We've got to keep these babies covered in Santa Barbara!  I have my fingers crossed that the sunshine we've been enjoying stretches into the summer.  June tends to be really foggy and gloomy around here.


Cora now fits the bonnet I made for Ruby last summer.  She's getting a new one, too, though.  I'm pretty sure a baby can't have too many bonnets.

Those bonnets are just so sweet! I wish I could make my 9 year old wear one. LOL!
