Pioneer Bonnet-Tutorial

I have somewhat fallen in love with the bonnet and what it represents.  The history behind many of the women who donned this piece of clothing brings meaning into my home.  Two more are in the making, ready to be displayed with pride.  Here is a good pattern that I found http://howtodresslikeapioneer.blogspot.com/2010/01/bonnet-tutorial.html

Fourth July Window

I had been looking for something that could be taken up and down from the wall as the holiday ended.  I also wanted a display that looked weathered and rustic.  I love this flag because it looks like someone found it in their attic.   It's big enough to display things around it without covering it up.  When I make this I will create the Betsy Ross flag to make it look more primitive. Here is the link for the directions. http://www.u-createcrafts.com/2010/06/creative-guest-painted-flag-window.html
