Have you noticed how early Easter is this year?  Yikes!  I always enjoyed having a  smocked Easter bonnet ready for nippy weather.  Besides being adorable they make a wonderful keepsake for Mommy to save.  They are simple to make and work up quickly.  The directions along with a smocking design can be found in our ‘Beginning Smocking Book.’
A story to share:  Many years ago, 19 to be exact, I was working in our local heirloom fabric store and like this year, Easter was early.  The Saturday before Easter it was sleeting here in North Alabama and we had customers in and out of the shop all day looking for ready-to-smock bonnets.  We made a note to have plenty on hand the next year!
