Little Betty Bonnet

Little Betty Bonnet

I purchased the Little Bonnet pattern from Little Betty Sews soon after my niece was born (11 weeks ago) as I know how hard it can be to find hats for little ones that offers great sun protection and that they can’t pull off.

This weekend I made Miss L a bonnet in the smallest size (x-small – newborn to 6 months).


My extended family gathered at a park near my Mum’s house this morning, and everyone agreed Miss L looked super cute in her new bonnet. We’re family, we’re allowed to be biased!


This pattern is well drafted, quick and easy to sew, and uses very little fabric (equivalent of two fat quarters) and you can either make fabric ties (like I did) or use ribbon.


This bonnet is a super satisfying make, and as a Mum, I’d have to say the perfect gift.  This pattern is going to be my ‘go to’ baby present for all the new little girls in my life.  How about you, do you have little ones in your life to make bonnets for?

Pattern:  Little Betty’s Little Bonnet
Xsmall (0-6 months).  The pattern also comes in Small (6-12 months) & Large (12-24 months)
Fabric Outer: 
Lungo d’Arancio from Tessuti (sold out)
Fabric Lining:  Quilting cotton from the $1 remnant bin at Spotlight!
Fabric Straps:  Voile from Tessuti (sold out)
Alterations:  I clipped all the curved seams on the bonnet with pinking shears and pressed the seams open.

And just in case the photos in the park didn’t happen this morning…
