B in her Bonnet

I made a teeny tiny Peekaboo Sunbonnet from a Made by Rae pattern for a friend who is due to deliver a baby girl next week.  This is the newborn size.  The cuteness factor is almost unbearable, wouldn't you say? 

Here is the reverse side.  Bitty Baby was a great model.  She looked where I wanted her to look.  She didn't try to grab the camera or scream when I wouldn't give it to her.

I made one for B too.  In size 1-2.  It fits really well, with a little growing room.  This was a quick and easy sew.  Probably under 2 hours without kids around; a bit longer if you are working around naps and such.  The polka-dots are DS Quilts by Denyse Schmidt found at JoAnn's. 

The reverse side is Kaffe Fasset Kite Tails.  I love this pattern.  I want to make more bonnets.  I'm tempted to make one for S too. 

One last look at Baby B in her bonnet.
