Hand Smocked Baby Bonnet Give Away!

This contest is now closed. To find out who won, click here.

Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer is having a Give Away Extravaganza. Bloggers from all over the Internet will be linking up at her place and giving stuff away.

FOR FREE!

For the occasion, in light of the name of my blog, and all, I thought I would give away something, you know, actually smocked. Just to prove I really can smock, and I didn't pick a wacky blog name out of the blue like some kind of nut.

Well, I am kinda nutty, but that's beside the point.

In any case, I have made this hand smocked baby bonnet many times. I have given some as gifts, made some for my own sweet babies, and made some for sale. Now, I have one to give away!

FOR FREE!


It is newborn size, white broadcloth with pink smocking, and makes a perfect heirloom keepsake for your own baby or a gift for someone special. Our girls use the ones that adorned their tiny heads on their baby dolls, and I hope one day they will use it for their own babies.

Just leave a comment, and I'll enter you in the drawing to win this sweet bonnet.

Can you even stand the adorable cuteness of it? I dare you to put this on your newborn when you leave the hospital and watch how many nurses ooh and aah over it.

Check back here on Friday, July 27th to find out who wins. If you don't win, don't fret. I am offering them for $22 plus $3 shipping in the continental U.S. (and sales tax for TX residents.)

Oh! And by all means click on the doggy link above and see the GiveAwayPalooza that is going on at Rocks in my Dryer!

oooooooooooohhh! ME!ME! I have 5 little girls, and I love bonnets! My current newborn is a boy, but hey, maybe we'll have another girl to model a too-adorable Smockity Smocked bonnet! No, I can't stand the cuteness of it!
