Olde Settler's Blue Prairie Bonett

Currently on Ebay- use the link on the right sidebar
Prairie Bonnets were an essential part of the prairie wardrobe even for little girls.

The brims kept the sun off of their faces and the long skirt of the bonnet kept their necks from getting sun and windburned. This child's bonnet is made from a quilt shop reproduction calico fabric in olde settler's blue color. It has been coffee dyed and baked to give it that old and worn look. It is 18 " long.
