My kids go to a really great school. Instead of typical holiday parties, my kids get to do things like have Greek festivals, and historical hat days. And I LOVE, LOVE that my too-grown-up tweeners still want Mom to make them something to wear.
Here are there cute bonnets for historical hat day. I followed this tutorial: http://mycottoncreations.blogspot.com/2013/06/pioneer-bonnet-tutorial.html. The hats were quick, easy and fit perfectly!
