I Make Prairie Bonnets!

A few years ago, I was asked to make a "Little House on the Prairie" outfit for my friend's niece. Did it ever start something! The bonnet was just so cute and fun to make. I had also always wanted to try to sell something on Ebay so I figured I'd make another and see what happened. Well, that summer I sold somewhere around a hundred bonnets - give or take a few. I've continued to make and sell a few along the way when I have time to sew.

I have just finished my Associates Degree in Graphic Design - I went back to school a bit later than most! In between looking for a permanent job, working my as-needed part-time job with a catering company and packing boxes to move, I have been sewing again. I find it a good peaceful time and also an opportunity to think. And, I can sell the product! You can find me on Ebay under pearlcabin. I'm going to post a few pictures of bonnets here for examples. Some of them may be available for direct sales, some on Ebay and some may be sold. I make sizes to fit adults to pre-schoolers.  If you have a size or color in particular that you would like to have, please contact me by email at Of course, you can always leave comments here!
