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.

This is my first post!

After coming across this adorable baby hat with bear ears, free pattern and tutorial on pinterest, I decided I had to make one for Sahar. I enlarged the pattern by adding half an inch to the seam allowance. the fit came out perfect

When Nir saw it, he had to have one too 🙂 so I found this free pattern and tutorial and added ears to it. For both hats I used a super cozy fleece I found at a local fabric store for the outer fabric, and super soft Jersey that I had in my stash, for the lining. Both of these hats sewed up very quickly… I love how they turned out
