Bonnets for everyone!!!

These are two bonnets I made for my nieces for their birthdays. One of them has a birthday on St. Patrick's day, so her bonnet is shamrock material. The other I used a multi-colored fabric, but used hot pink ribbon for the bow on the back & the tie around the chin. Both are the same McCall's pattern #9424 that I used before for Meagan's. I also made one exactly like Meagan's for my cousin's daughter.

I can totally see my girls loving these. How cool are they??? :) (I'd secretly wear one too and pretend I'm a prairie muffin!)

Antique Daddy and all his cousins talk about how their Granny McKee would always say, "Them who wears bonnets are good." I'm not sure what the origin is, but I think it had something to do with modesty and humility.
