PURL BEE BONNET PATTERN ALTERATION

שחור לבן

Three new baby girls were born in Nir’s extended family in the past few weeks, and for some reason his cousins get quite the satisfaction from keeping the gender a secret during the pregnancy, which means last-minute gift creating.

You may or may have not noticed that I have a slight obsetion for hats with ears, I also really adore baby bonnets, so when I came across this baby bonnet on Pinterest I was fixated on making something similar. when I found the PURL BEE WINTER BABY BONNET free pattern and tutorial, I was thrilled. I had to modify it in order for it to look like the bonnets I wanted, so I straightened the bottom line of the bonnet and cut of the ties, and instead I inserted jersey laces in the corners of the bonnet. I also inserted little lined ears in the seams of the outer bonnet.

I used a super soft and fuzzy grey fleece for all of the outer bonnets (the same as I used for these).
For this first  lining  I used a super bright red and pink polka doted knit. Love it.

This second one has a coral and light grey striped knit lining.

This third bonnet is lined with a super cute floral musterd knit.

Our apartement floor is freezing in the winter, witch sucks cuz Sahar spends a lot of time on it 😦  I decided to sew him thick booties to keep his feet warm and toasty.

The fisrt pair I sewed was from a free pattern I found on pinterest. It was to narrow for his feet so I played around with the pattern a little… I must have made at least three pairs until I was satisfied. The final pattern fit him perfectly. He seems to like them! he didn’t try to take them off even once…yay!

I’m planning on making him a bunch more of these!! I think I will be brave and make my first tutorial , when I sew the next pair! Maybe I’ll be super courageous and  upload the pattern too! (yuyks!) 

Stay warm (if it is cold where you are)
