Easter bonnets....



I was thinking this year for Easter I should make me and my girls Easter bonnets. I remember when I was a little girl I always had to have an Easter bonnet and gloves. I remember felling so special and proud wearing my Easter dress with my easter bonnet.
I think wearing Easter bonnets are a lost art.
I googled Easter bonnets and here are some of the bonnets I found.



Do you think I could get one of my girls to wear this one ? It looks heavy but I could see Shelly in this one.

I love this one I could totally see me wearing this with all the feathers and bling...

I guess I will have to see what I can come up with. I still have to make some skirts for the older girls and me.. I already bought Madie 2 new Easter dress. I also need to get the boys new ties. I just love Easter...

So do you all get all dressed up for Easter? tell me some of your Easter traditions.

Jen, this is not so much about easter bonnets (although I never got new easter dresses & bonnets as a child), it's about the candy cones...I think we could make 6" square cones (get 4 to a sheet of paper). I've made some, they're the perfect size.
PS - I think you would look fabulous in the first bonnet. Really

well, since this is my first year with a girl, I made her an easter dress. Yes, I sewed it myself (with a little help from my mom, thanks mom!), and I need to get it on her to take some pictures. I think our new tradition will be that the easter bunny will leave bathing suits and summer hats for everyone. They have to get them anyways, and what better way to kill two birds with one stone.
