Baby Bonnet-holic

By  |  7 Comments

Thanks/blame goes to reader Cowgirl in the Sand, who made the mistake of alerting me to an Etsy shop with nothing but ridiculously adorable baby bonnets.  It’s like telling a food addict that it’s all-you-can-eat pancakes season at IHOP.  RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

    It’s ADORABLE!! I’ll have to send a pic of my Miss S in hers when it arrives. What size did you order? 6-12 mo?

    Oh yes, please do.

    I did indeed order the 6-12 months. Fits perfectly (none too big), and she has a slightly larger-than-average-sized head for an 8-month-old.

    Thanks again for helping feed my addiction!

    I only ordered one but I got the 12-18 month size, which I’m afraid is going to be too big. So I might need to order another one. Or two. Also, I got the exact same pattern you did. I mean, there were only about 50 to choose from, so obviously I would pick the same one as you, right? Actually, I feel a bit better knowing that you picked the same pattern for your Miss S because I have no idea how to shop for a blue-eyed, fair-skinned baby and I keep putting her in colors that look terrible. From now on, I’ll just look at what you put Miss Skye in and I’ll copy it. :)

    Well, if it’s too big, the only thing you can do, really, is order several more.

    Crazy that you bought the VERY same one. You obviously have great taste. Light pink and blue do seem to flatter Miss Skye, so I’m sure they’ll look great on your Miss S as well. I tried my hardest to resist pink because it’s so cliché, but alas… I had to give in, darn it.
