Wow thank you Cheesy.
I do indeed have the best job ever - I love going to work every day!
And the bonnets aren't actually that hard to make - you just sew up a buckram frame, wire the edges and then make a sort of slip-cover for it.  The only thing that might be considered hard would be the amount of hand-work required.

Your coat is absolutely adorable! It's so simple and classy and the color looks great on you!
33  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Bodacious Bonnet Bonanza - Edit; now with more bonnets 9/4/10 on: August 23, 2010 10:38:40 PM
Thanks for clicking on this topic despite the obnoxious alliteration title XD.
First some back-story (feel free to skip):
I work in a store that sells reproductions of Victorian clothing. We carry mostly things from other vendors, but some of our products are made in-house.  My boss (the fabulous lady behind the Laughing Moon patterns  Cheesy) is currently teaching me how to make and trim bonnets.  
these are all made from scratch (buckram and wire), covered in silk taffeta and decorated with new and vintage ribbons and flowers.


Without further ado, PIX:






Edit 9/4 - New bonnets

Here is a  group shot of the wonderful goodies Dinkime sent me;
They include a beautiful set of notecards printed with images from Miyazaki images and they have cute sentiment stickers that you can attach to them.  There is also a great totoro bag (fantastic for when I borrow comics at the library!!), a very nice note and last but not least a really cool No-Face stamp!  I looove this stamP! I've already put it to good use on my art journal Smiley
