Our Vintage Baby Bonnet Featuring – Handmade By Family

Ok, so I am a bonnet lover! We all know that, right?! I am obsessed with traditional baby clothes, I love seeing my girls in handmade, knitted clothing.

When Leia was in my tummy I was gifted literally about twenty knitted cardigans by my mums friend which we adored, we didn’t really get to use them though with Kaia as she was born in July! My full on summer baby girl!

However I’m still as obsessed with handmade as I will forever & always¬†love anything knitted.

I am trying my best to keep my one year old a baby for as long as physically possible. She’ll be going to school drinking a bottle at this rate! She just never seemed to be a ‘baby’ if that makes sense so I’m holding on to those final baby days!

I have found an Instagram store which I am beyond obsessed with. They make everything knitted and vintage. Most of their items comes from reclaimed fabric that would otherwise be seen in landfill!

Their insta feed is beautiful, go check them out if you want to see the beautifulness!

I saw the selection of bonnets and knew I had to get at least one. I find most of my fav picks for baby clothes over on Instagram and nine times out of ten the service is more valued and so much better than buying from the high street.

I will do a follow up on this post with Kaia wearing the bonnet in the coming days!

The package arrived beautifully presented & personalised to Kaia which I thought was just so adorable!


It needs little mentioning as to how impressed I am with how much care has been taken to deliver these handmade items, we even got a personalised black and white picture which to me is just brilliant! I will be putting this in Kaia’s baby book and I am certain if my girls are anything like me they will have questions over who gave them the note!

The bonnet is just as amazing! Kaia’s is an ‘xl mama Jane’ bonnet. It’s reversible. Vintage wool houndstooth with vintage 60s brown floral cotton on the reverse. Our bonnet is 100% vintage! I am just so happy with it!

Its fair to say this really needs little explanation, I just adore this vintage piece and hope the girls will pass it down.

Thank you so much to Sarah’s Mam, we are blown away & thank you for the personalised note & picture!

Do you have a favorite vintage piece of clothing or heirloom you want to pass on through the generations?

Love, Rebecca
