Additions to the Baby's Room


Just finished  some cushions made from the scraps,  and a few squares left over from the quilt.  The crib looked quite bare so I decided to make these.  Oh, I should mention, this is for my friend's grandson who is due to arrive within the week!!

And below is a picture I've painted!  I got the idea from Pinterest.   I googled templates from Google images. Lots of great ideas there for various projects.





And finally, the crib quilt!

Vintage Brim Bonnet

This is a Vintage Brim Bonnet I made for my niece's baby!  She's 11 months, and just adorable!

The back of the bonnet has a ribbon draw string, which is used to adjust the size of the bonnet.

Because they live on a blueberry farm in the Okanagan.  Ronda was looking for a bonnet  for her baby which she could wear when the sunny warm weather arrives.  (Just so you know, it snowed today!!)

This bonnet was very simple and quick to make!  If you are interested in making one similar, just click on the highlighted link above.

I attached the straps to the bonnet using Kam Snaps for safety reasons, and would highly recommend anyone else do the same!  Or...if you have any other suggestions, I would be happy to hear them...thank you.
