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!


  1. Bonnets are too cute! Glad you got time to post something on your blog...Congratulations on your May graduation.

  2. Love the bonnets. My Mother, Grandmother and sisters always wore one. I wish I had one of the old bonnets. Don't have a clue as to what happen to them. All long dead now. Too late and no one left to ask. CF
