A Pair of Black & White Bonnets

I recently finished 2 matching bonnets, one in black, and one in white, for a Lolita and her friend who plan on doing black and white twin outfits. I had been holding off on showcasing them because she wanted to be the first to show them off.

She looks so adorable in the bonnets! Click for bigger pictures.

The 2 bonnets, before I shipped them off, and before the corsage on the white bonnet had a chance to fall off! I sent these out in the middle of a heat wave so I think the glue softened up a bit and the general jostling of shipping knocked it off. Luckily, it was a quick fix!

The design for both of the bonnets and the corsages are nearly identical, the only difference being it was impossible for me to find matching lace in black and white. The details on the corsages are flipped and placed in opposite positions on each bonnet, so when they stand next to each other, in their matching outfits, they're bonnets at least, are mirror images of each other.

The design is meant to be a bit of a mash up of Baby's bonnets and the classic Triple Fortune design.

I've been a bit quiet on this blog for a few weeks! I have a couple bonnets in the works as well as general craft projects, but mostly I've just been a bit lazy about posting pictures of what I have been working on!
