Smiles & Linings!

Just look at this sweetness! 😍 I just love @ohheymamaray & her lovely family 🤗  I also love that you guys love the linings of our bonnets so much. We always try our best to give you two bonnets in one & it makes me so happy to see when people enjoy both sides of them. It means that the extra time I spend finding a lining that pairs well with the trim/ruffle was well worth it.
.
But not all of our bonnets are reversible. Our embroidered bonnets are just white or beige on the inside because oftentimes the embroidery makes the sides of the bonnet thicker, there's more to fit into the trim/tuck of the bonnet & they really need to have a thin lining fabric on the inside. It is also the case sometimes where the embroidery falls right at the child's ear which would not be very comfortable when the bonnet was flipped since the embroidery is often raised up off the bonnet. For those reasons (& many others which I will not bore you with!) we always (even for customs) line the embroidered bonnets with thin white or beige cotton.
.
The other non-embroidered bonnets are almost always reversible. There are times when the fabric (like with the Della Rose bonnet we did recently) does not allow us to make the best bonnet we can AND have it be reversible. In which case we opt for a plain lining. But for the most part, we try to save more textiles from waste by picking a fun print or something that compliments the trim for the inside - then you guys can flip it for something different.

If you're interested in seeing what the linings are for this week I always do a live stream/IGTV on @sweet_as_april IG & we also list the full Friday restock preview on our website here. We offer satin linings for those who would like their bonnets lined for curly hair - all that info is also linked in our profile under FAQs. As always I am happy to answer any questions you have about bonnets, linings, upcycling, fit, care instructions... you ask it & I will do my best to answer! Or visit our website & take a browse around - we have outlined a lot about our business & our mission there ❤️  Love & bonnets, guys!
