Pink Saturday {Katherine’s Bonnet}


I made this bonnet for my niece to wear for her baby blessing on Sunday.  I thought it was sweet how the light makes the bonnet look pink.

I made up the pattern.

Here’s a little sneak peek at the  blessing gown that goes with the bonnet.  I designed the smocking graph myself.

you can see that it’s not quite done yet.  it still needs the embroidery done on the hem (which I designed)!

more pictures to come of the completed gown and Katherine wearing her pretty outfit.

About Missy

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.

    Lovely Pink Saturday post and sweet blog, too. Woke up to a dusting of snow on the ground so even thought this isn’t Saturday I really needed a boost!

    Sorry, I didn’t get to see everyone yesterday. I had important business. My 11 year-old grandson was playing football and he wanted Mimi to go to the out-of-town-last-of-the-season-game. THEY WON AGAINST AN UNDEFEATED TEAM! WOO-HOO! 35 – 17☺

    Hope the coming week blesses you with sunshine, happiness and good friends.
