and was able to give it to the expectant parents on our drive home.
Once little Beatrix Grace was born, I was able to make an appropriate gift to send down. I thought a sunbonnet would be very cute and practical for a child spending her first year in Texas sunshine. I used the pattern from Purl Soho and whipped this adorable little hat up this afternoon.
I don't have anything the right size to model it but you get the idea.
The pattern is given for 4 sizes from 0 - 24 months. I made the 3 - 6 month size which should get her through 'til the fall. The pattern called for 1/4 yd. of outer fabric, inner fabric, and fusible interfacing (I used medium weight) but a fat quarter of each would certainly suffice. The interfacing is only used on the visor part. The template is a printable .pdf. Just make sure to check that the printed 1"square is indeed 1" square.
