The Rose Bonnet

Morning peeps! Today is day 15, and that means we've officially hit the half way mark. Exciting stuff indeed. Don't forget if you are uploading photos anywhere online to tag them #ittybittygianthatdrive I love checking out the hashtags and seeing them all on different platforms.

Today's bonnet is  a stunning and dainty little bonnet, for a bub all of 14 weeks gestation. I love this pattern, and hope to have a few pieces to match down the track. I was going to put a small organza flower on it, but then I realised I'd already packed them all, whoops!
