This summer I decided to make hats for my two grandbabies as part of their Christmas presents.
For Little O I chose a sun bonnet pattern I used to make for my baby girls. It is an old NZ Plunket pattern and the best I found to use for little ones who love to pull their hats off.
Master D’s is also a plunket pattern… though I need to adjust it as it was a lot larger than I expected!
Little O’s bonnet is adjustable. There are popper studs at the back so that it can be made larger as baby grows. Both the babies hats are made of cotton. A sweet floral fabric for Little O. I lined it with the same fabric on the inside.
