Bonnets and Binky Clip Gifts

11:08 PM

Two of my good friends recently had baby girls, and it was the first girl after boys for both of them.  So I made two little gifts each with a sun bonnet and binky clips.
I made Ellaria a sun bonnet earlier this summer using the pattern from Little Betty Designs.

This first bonnet I used white eyelet and a big wooden button.

Rather than the ribbon ties, I use elastic rope to stretch under the chin and stretch around the button on the other side. 

 The next bonnet used vintage floral fabric.
I lined the bonnet with a coordinating aqua.

 Then to add some function, I made a few quick Binky Clips, tutorial here.
The white one was lace sewn on top of white ribbon.  It added some texture and I thought the lace made it look a little fancy, although it is still a binky clip.
