Little French Bonnet is loved all over the world and is our most well attended class at Martha Pullen. This sweet bonnet is the perfect project for those who have never done any heirloom sewing, those who need a refresher course or those who want a handmade, precious baby gift. The techniques used to create the bonnet are basic, but each one is necessary for all heirloom sewing projects. Class is full of tips, tricks, correct stitch settings; tried and true techniques for attaching batiste, French lace, Swiss embroidered insertion, entredeux and satin ribbons as well as gathering and attaching a ruffle are all demonstrated in this little baby bonnet. It is fun to create a real project while learning these fabulous techniques! We promise a time of enjoyment, valuable sewing education and a completed bonnet.
