This hat was supposed to be a bonnet. I'd already gotten started when I realized that the purple ruffle I planned to use didn't match my purple fabric. I didn't have enough of the fabric I used to make my own ruffle, so I attached a tiny ruffle instead.
When I finished the cap, I tried it on my baby and realized that it looked a lot more like an old fashioned swim cap than a bonnet. So that's what it is.It's also too big on her, sadly. It'll probably fit her in the middle of winter when I won't be able to find a little purple swimming suit to go with it. Sad.
