Easter Bonnet for Baby and De Stash Challenge Blog Hop



This vintage doll was a gift from my Fabulous Aunt to our sweet little grand daughters and their favorite toy at my house.  No matter what she is wearing, they must change her clothes immediately upon their arrival.  

We are talking about her again for this month's De - Stash Challenge!  What is this challenge, you might be asking...

Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C'mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! Check out some awesome creations you might be able to make from your own stash! Everyone is allowed a $10 max to create a new craft utilizing mostly their own stash of craft supplies! #CraftRoomDestashChallenge

Let's Meet the Hosts!! 







Sewing for the vintage doll is fun, but a bit of a challenge.  She was made in the late 1960's so finding patterns just for her has not been successful.  I've been using baby patterns, sewing a muslin, and then figuring out size from there.  To see her winter ensemble (and January De Stash Challenge) just click HERE.  Today, we are talking about accessories, specifically, her hat.  First of all, I found a  *FREE*  pattern for a Winter Baby Bonnet that is adorable!


The muslin was made from red fleece as it doesn't need to be hemmed or lined AND it perfectly matches her Winter Ensemble that already has a cape and shoes sewn from the same fabric.  I love how the soft red fleece drapes so nicely.  Our vintage baby needs a 3 - 6 month size in this pattern.


 Moving on to what I really wanted to make in this floral navy with pale blue lining.  You can see the cloth is quite a bit stiffer as the scarf becomes more of a bow.


A darling little rosette was added to one side.  It was made by hot gluing gathered lace around the underside of a covered button.


Her spring outfit in raspberry and navy isn't quite finished yet.  I am excited to show it to you soon!

Everything from both hats was already in my crazy pile of a stash.

Let's see what the other participants used!
