sewing: easy baby bonnet

we are heading to hawaii for our winter getaway and i couldn't be more excited for a family vacation!
one problem having procreated with the whitest man on earth, is having very pale sun sensitive children
so to prevent the hawaii rays from burning esme', i decided to make her a bonnet to help shade her little head

i chose a dusty rose fabric for the outside for a vintage feel and then added a polka dot lining for the inside

i read some tutorials but i wanted my bonnet to have a little more detail on the back
so i created a pattern that featured a twisted knot on the back

i added some gray grosgrain ribbon and used a detailed stitch on my machine to secure it close to the brim

she looks adorable and love this old school classic with a modern twist
