When I was given the task of making a baby bonnet I knew which adorable pattern I was going to use.  This Simplicity has come out with some Vintage patterns and although I don’t have any more babies in the house I still had to purchase this adorable pattern.

HeatnBond Woven Fusible Interfacing in Soft gives the bonnet just the right amount of stiffness that it needs to keep the sun off the babies face without making it to stiff.

Tip: This fabric is a seersucker that has a texture to it, when applying the interfacing I like to turn the iron down just a setting so that it doesn’t get so hot that it irons out the texture.TooltipText

I am so happy with how the bonnet turned out I think when I get the chance I will be making the ruffle jumper to go with it.
