Baby bonnets and nieces

I’m sure I’m not the only one who buys fabric with no plans whatsoever for what I’m going to make.  I just like the colour, the print or the feel of it or something really simple like that and basically I’ve just got to have it.

Often this fabric then sits in a neatly folded pile on my shelf in my craft room until I have a eureka moment. 

I had one of those very moments last week. 
I saw this tutorial and knew straight away what fabric I was going to use to make it. 
A few hours later (really easy to follow pattern) I had my first little bonnet made.  
I love it !
But it wasn’t for me … it was for my gorgeous little niece Sienna Ella. 
I think you’ll agree it suits her.  

Watch this space – I have a feeling there will be lots of baby/cute/girly items being made at the cottage from now on.  
My first time being an Auntie and the icing on the cake is that I’m godmother too – beyond excited :O)  
If you have any baby patterns you’ve made recently let me know in the comments, would love to see
