Vintage Linen Bonnet

I adore bonnets. My little Hamster will rock bonnets all summer. I always had a bonnet on as a baby. I think they are super important to keep that little face free from the sun. I plan on making several since it is very hard to find store bought ones and handmade ones are better anyway!
Heidi brought this pattern to my attention on Pinterest and I had to give it a try.Vintage Linen Bonnet

I used a vintage dresser runner that I had in my stash. It had just a touch of embroidery and it is a wonderful linen. I couldn't resist using the yellow rick rack too.Vintage Embroidery Close Up

Here is a close up of the embroidery. Some lovely work. I used some scraps of vintage cream linen for the lining.
Oh, and my lab results came back perfectly normal! Whew! Hamster can stay just where she is until she is ready to show her wee little face!
Off to try my hand at another style of bonnet!
