Easter is coming and the hats are getting made

With only a few days left until Easter I have turned my attention to the important task of making Easter bonnets for the children. This sounded like a fantastic excuse to amble around Pinterest for several hours (I did look at some bonnets in that time...)

Here are a few of the ideas I found:

This bonnet is decorated with some fabulous crocheted flowers and eggs

Want to try something a bit different, why not make a lace bonnet



You can learn how at http://www.advanced-embroidery-designs.com/projects_2009/guide_battenberg_hat.html


There are lots of ideas for easter bonnets on the Organised Housewife blog at http://theorganisedhousewife.com.au/holiday-seasons/easter/more-easter-bonnet-hat-ideas/

I love this one

I'm off to plan our creations - they will then have to pass the four-year-old fashion police and the nursery's choke-tester before work can begin, and with the additional input of two preschoolers they may not turn out exactly as I plan, but I'm sure we are going to have a great time making them!

I will be back later in the week to share our finished masterpieces.
