Each of the bonnet styles included in THE BONNET COLLECTION BOOK I features construction with an open back casing. This is the easiest bonnet construction to sew and it affords a small growth allowance. The casing can be adjusted to fit the baby's head, both when it first made and as the baby grows.
There are 3 bonnet styes - the smocked bonnet, the heirloom bonnet and the handkerchief bonnet.
The smocked bonnet has some elasticity and can probably be warn longer than the other bonnet styles.
The handkerchief bonnet can be made from any of a variety of handkerchiefs which can be found in linen shops and antique shops. this bonnet is fun because of the variety of materials to work with and because the construction is so easy. The book contains detailed size guidelines for making a handkerchief bonnet.
The book includes more than 5 bonnet designs with ideas for even more variations
Multi-size patterns include sizes newborn, 2 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months, 24 months

Shipping for Pleater Needles US customers
Needles are shipped in a heavy cardboard envelope to prevent bending. While this would seem to increase the shipping cost actually USPS charges the same rate for 1, 2 and 3 oz. 1 oz is the smallest weight I can use.
Based on this I have set a flat shipping rate of $3.00 for up to 80 pleater needles shipped in 1 package within the United States.
