A Note About the Easter Bonnets

The girls love showing off their new Easter bonnets.

Looking out the window... www.izannahwalker.com

Do you remember turning acorn caps into doll dishes and using handkerchiefs for dolly diapers and shawls when you were a child?  My mother used to help me fashion doll clothes out of objects we found around the house.  I’m sure that this is a long standing mother and daughter tradition since I occasionally come across antique doll clothing that children have made from little bits of this and that.

I was sitting in my studio, thinking about Easter bonnets, when my eye happened to light on a pile of crocheted doilies…  Suddenly I could just see them turning into beautiful, lacy Easter  sunbonnets!  I loved the idea of recreating one of my childhood traditions and I hope that you are as captivated by the bonnets and the story behind them as I am.
