Mother Goose and her new bonnet.This is my old Mother Goose stuffed toy I had as a child in the late 50's, early 60's. She was missing her bonnet so I decided to make her one. I found what the original bonnet looked like but came up with this simple bonnet that could also be used for a doll.


Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1



  • 8 by 11 inch piece of fabric
  • 1/2 yd lace trim
  • 1 1/2 yd ribbon
  • embellishments
  • thread and needle
  • scissors
Supplies for the bonnet.


  1. Fold fabric in half lengthwise, right sides together, and press with an iron. Unfold. Press 1/4 inch under on both long sides and 1/2 inch under on both short sides
  2. A hemmed piece of fabric.
  3. Fold rectangle in half lengthwise, wrong sides together. Hand baste lace between the top and bottom of bonnet to hold in place. Leave 1/2 inch space where the fold is which will later be used as a casing for the ribbon. Sew lace in place by machine.
  4. Adding lace to the edges.

  5. Using a safety pin through the ribbon, thread the ribbon through the casing and pull together. Tie ribbon into a bow.
  6. Adding ribbon to the bonnet.
    The finished bonnet.
  7. For front, decorate with flowers, buttons, etc. attaching ribbon front ties underneath the embellishment.
