Easy to Care for Newborn and Infant Colorful Baby Sun Bonnet Sunhats
had the urge recently to create some small handmade multi-colored baby infant bonnets, both ribboned and ruffled sun hats for infant and baby girls using a variety of colors. However, each one of these bonnets are so different. Some have double ruffles, others have hand-crocheted ric-rac while others have longer satin ties to make a larger and fancier bow tie . Yet others have either a single-faced or double faced fabric tie and/or a contrasting interior color. Some have detailed machine embroidery on them. Prices will vary and reflect the amount of work (such as machine embroidery) done for each bonnet. These small handmade multi-colored baby infant bonnets gave me hours of fun creating and sewing and your baby will have hours of comfort wearing them.
Each bonnet shows three different sides; the front, the side and the back, so how the bonnet is worn and how it looks on your baby can easily be seen.
Made of light and breezy cotton blends, the fabrics are color fast. However, I still recommend using detergent specifically made to keep colors bright and vibrant. And of course, no bleach!
These bonnets are varied in color and make up although the bonnet design itself remains the same.
Since many people are not too thrilled having their babies photographed and placed online (can't say I blame them…..) all bonnets have been modeled on a life-sized baby doll. But to be sure that these fit not only an infant but an older baby, I tried them on the pastor's granddaughter who was 8 months old at the time. I also measured her head circumference which was 19 1/2 inches. You can assume the bonnets should fit your baby for quite awhile unless she hits some unusual growth spurt! Certainly your baby will get quite some use out of the bonnets
In order to get this bonnet to fit a tiny baby, or a new born, pull the back cap ties tight and tie the bow. As your baby grows and needs more headroom, loosen the ties and ease up the back cap, then re-tie the drawstrings.
Baby Bonnet Care Instructions
These small handmade multi-colored baby infant bonnets lay flat for easy pressing if needed. As mentioned,though they are all a cotton blend, it's seriously recommended to hand wash only with a color safe cleaning soap. Back ties can easily be removed before washing and re-threaded after drying and pressing. Air dry and then press with a flat iron after lightly misting with water. Or you can place a damp cloth over the top of the bonnet and then iron.
