    I have a client who has me create a Sunbonnet for each of her girls every 3 years with the clothing they wore during the 3 years prior. This is the picture of the first two. Embellishment, especially the hat rims, are buttons, bows, ruffles, etc., that were taken from the outfits. One little girl got a pink bordered one and the other little girl got the lavender bordered one. The second photo is from a client who lost her husband last year. Sunbonnet Sues and Fisherman Freds are appliqued out of his shirts with embellishments in the hat rims.

    What a cute idea. The kids will remember those fabrics and hopefully it will bring back great memories. Thank you for showing them to us

    I recently opened a bag of fabric scraps that my deceased Mother had in the attic.... this would be perfect. She made all my clothes, so they should be around 50 yrs old.

    Yes, the embroidery on the fronts of the quilts show names and dates and ages.

    Do it! Make that quilt and hang on to those memories in the way only a quilt can bring. Otherwise, it's just clothes stuck away somewhere not being used, admired or appreciated!

    How special all of those quilts are for the owners.
    And how special you are, for taking the time to dismantle and create the extra touches via the embellishments!
