Spring Bonnet

Finally I have managed to complete & upload pictures of the spring bonnet I have made for my friends little 4 year old daughter....
Like most other little sweeties of her age, she likes nothing better than having something new to wear & I thought this would be a lovely little gift for her which she can use when the sun is shining...

Here is the front view of the hat... complete with a bird, butterflies, flowers & leaves..


This is the back of the hat which I kept very plain with only the bow for detail... I do however like how the little birdie can be seen flying over the top....



This gives a slightly better view of things... the little bird is held in the air with a piece of wire and the bird itself is made using the negative part of a clear double sided peel offs which has been covered in glitter, attached to card & then cut around...


Here is a close up of the flowers & leaves which are also clear double sided peel offs (this time using the outlines, instead of the negatives) which have been glittered then water coloured using Sakura Stardust pens...



Another close up of the front of the hat which allows you to see the depth of the flowers & butterflies.



Close up of the butterflies which are simply metallic padded butterflies which I have added detail to using Sakura Identi pens.



Well I hope you've enjoyed looking at my little spring bonnet and now I'm off to see what else my mischevious little hands can get themselves up to... yes I do have to organise dinner for hubby coming in & have the night time feeding of animals etc to deal with... but I'm sure I can manage another creation or two before it's time to go to bed...
Hope you're all having a fun filled day
Hugs

The bonnet looks beautiful Lorraine. I used to love making the Easter bonnets for my two girls, unfortunately they are a bit old for that now.
