A Walnut Grove Birthday Party

A customer contacted me about creating 10 Little House on the Prairie Sun Bonnets for her daughter's birthday party.  The child wanted a Laura Ingall's party for her birthday and mom thought it would be cute to give each of the guests a bonnet as a favor.

The mother was not particular about the fabric I used so I decided to use a variety of calico material.  I used my basic bonnet pattern with fabric ties and a large brim in the front.
The back has a modesty flap and a removable bow. 
I sew a pin back to the bow to make it easy to remove for laundering.
When I had completed all 10 bonnets they looked so cute.  I can just imagine the happy faces of the girls when they come to this party.

I think everyone will be very excited about their Little House bonnet!!  What a great idea for a young girl's party.
