I guess the JCPenney catalogs I modeled for as a child didn't help me develop hot modeling skills because my posing is lame. But Michael really liked this shot because he said "it looks like the smiley Erin I know and love." Ahh. So sweet.
All I did was hack off the bottom, take in the sides, hem it and make a tie. Super easy.
With all the left over material I got the bright idea to make a pioneer bonnet for Sutton. Which would have been adorable but apparently her head is MASSIVE! I used the small version of this pattern found at Pickup Some Creativity.
Ezra makes a cute little pioneer girl though. Anyone with a baby girl want this cute bonnet?
So I whipped up another one (it is a quick project) in the larger size and it fits perfectly! I love it. When Sutton first tried it on, she looked in the mirror and said "I look... great... sort of". Ha! She warmed up to it though.
Also Chris (the author of the bonnet pattern) is having her first giveaway- a cute little girls bag. Go check it out!
