Baby Bonnets from Leftovers

I don't often do craft shows, but my friend Danielle of Live Laugh Sew is having one in her home in a few weeks.  I have been going through what I have on hand and realizing that I REALLY need to sell some things, LOL.

I've also been looking at Pinterest. Sometimes that gets me in trouble, LOL. I usually wind up heading into my sewing room with boatloads of ideas afterward and today was no different.  More on the other ideas later...

The one I focused on today is really very simple and I have been itching to get into my sewing room and start in on them.  In fact they are so simple that I would be willing to put together a tutorial if anyone is interested.

Baby bonnets.  I have so many small pieces of fabric left over from other projects, and bits of lace and rickrack and ribbon galore.  I thought this would be a great way to combine them!  I am really loving making these.  They are so simple and quick to sew up and will hopefully sell at the craft sale (unless someone else wants them before... wink, wink...)

This one is a 3-6 month size.
This one is also a 3-6 month size.  I will need to purchase some ribbon for this one.  I didn't have the right size red and the brown that I had seemed too drab.  
And this one is a 6-12 month size. 
I am hoping to do a few more in both sizes and also a few in 0-3 month size.  I'm also considering doing a few lined with flannel.  It has turned downright cold up here in Minnesota in the last few days.   

All in all it was a pretty fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon!  What about you?  What have you been up to lately?
