The day Bonnet is made with white cotton or muslin. It is gathered and finished with a band. A grosgrain ribbon sews over the band and finishes with a bow at the center front. Our bonnet has cloth ties to hold the bonnet in place but satin ribbons could be substituted.

To complete the ensemble, there is a white cotton or muslin drawstring bag for holding lunch or school books.
