Sewn, Embellished, Sold!
This little pilot cap/bonnet pattern was calling to me, so I cut a couple out in different sizes this week. I finished and embellished this one, took some modeling shots on a friend's baby boy (he grimaced but endured!), listed it in the shop yesterday afternoon, and woke up to a sold! e-mail. (05/03/09 edit: Another one is listed in the shop now.)
This is one of the quickest items that has ever left me, except for my first listing of bias tape. The shape of the cap seems sort of medieval, doesn't it? I think made up in silvers or grays, it might pass for a baby knight's cap. Also, the bonnet is actually fully reversible, but I had to sew on the flower, as suggested in the pattern. It's so fun to mix all the calicoes up, isn't it? I wish I had a baby girl right now so I could sew a wardrobe of all the darling ideas I see around the internet. So, I'll pretend, I guess, and sew for my shop.
