This week's challenge was inspired by the royal wedding and called on iron crafters to create something for a wedding. I mulled over ideas for wedding gifts, decorations, invitations and then decided to create something for a member of the wedding party, the flower girl. I have been wanting to make my little girl a bonnet to keep the sun off her fair haired head and I thought a pretty white bonnet would be a lovely accessory for a flower girl in a spring or summer outdoor wedding. Amazingly, I had the perfect fabric on hand (light weight, bright white, and eyelet trimmed). I also had about a yard of lace trim in the same shade of white.
I perused Etsy for ideas and once I found something I liked I went in search of a pattern. I found this pattern and modified it a bit, to achieve the look I wanted, by adding a ruffle trim and rounding off the edges along the bonnet brim. Scroll down for my tutorial.
