Toot Sweet is a corruption of the French ‘tout de suite’, which literally means ‘all at once’ – and this baby bonnet is as close as you can come to immediate gratification! Not to mention simple, stunning, and pillowy soft!
The Toot Sweet Newborn Bonnet requires just 30 yards of super chunky yarn, about a yard of ribbon, and some embellishments. You can make the bonnet and embellishments in less than an hour (assuming you don’t have 3 other kids interrupting you every few minutes, ahem), and it’s sure to be a hit at any baby shower. No need to tell them just how quick and easy it was to make!
