Hi Shelley, beautiful hats which look like they're mostly for girls. I'm in Australia and the sun is relentless. How about a Legionnaire hat? Thank-you

Just love these hats, swaddles and especially the gorgeous fabrics! Like many above I was looking for DIY baby sun hat and matching baby Mary Jane shoes - in particular the Mary Jane shoes as I was able to get the Tulip Petal Hat pattern further up. Any help so much appreciated! Sue

Hello, When I clicked on the diy pattern for the baby sun hat and Mary Jane shoes, it took me to a beanie pattern. Can you help me get the bonnet/shoes pattern? Thanks!

in have downloaded the pattern for a baby bonnet with ruffled brim today, it is the bonnet that is so beautiful. I have a question with the 2/3 seam allowance. Is the seam allowance with pattern pieces all ready included or do we need to add 2/3" before we cut out the pieces of the brim and crown pieces. Thank you.
