Baby Bonnet

untitled (1 of 3)

I’ve made this bonnet twice now. I have a love for cute projects that are so easy that you barely have to think about them. This was something I stumbled upon while crocheting with Emily. I had crocheted a rectangle and was astounded to piece together that if I folded the rectangle and stitched one of the open lengthways sides, you have a bonnet. It was almost as if it was a recollected skill from another generation. Like in Clan of the Cave Bear*.

The first bonnet I made, I gave to baby Oliver. For that one, I just made braided string pieces for the tie in the front. For this one (for a future baby), I had a stroke of genius – that if I do say so myself, multiplied the cuteness – use vintage fabric for the tie.

*Clan of the Bear is REQUIRED Woodsy Woman reading. Sooooooo good.

 

Cold Saturday

To be clear, this is Moo Moo’s cold Saturday. Our cold Saturday usually consists of Alnis and I running around Moo Moo desperately trying to get laundry, cleaning, groceries and cooking done while trying to fit in some outside play for Esker. It looks a lot like warm Saturdays actually, except we’re wearing wool sweaters and socks.
