Prairie Bonnets

So here they are my first attempt at making prairie bonnets (Just need to coffee stain them). The first three are the ones that I have made. The first one, well it may fit a dolls head. He He And it took me hours to make these! I think maybe the next one I make I will be faster.All I can say is that I would starve to death if this was my livelihood. I am bad at reading patterns, so I just kinda guess on some things. But I am proud!!!!

    You did a wonderful job on the prarie bonnets. I don't think anyone would have known it was your first time making them if you wouldn't have told us.

    Have a great day!!

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
