Ds1 loves foxes. So I thought it would be fun to make a bonnet with a fox chasing some chicks. the finished article looks a bit scary and having viewed some hats online I am wondering if this is in fact completely inappropriate. He is in reception so this is my first brush with bonneting. Am I worrying over nothing?

I've seen the first Easter bonnet making photos of the year on Facebook, so it must be time to bump this grin

Save it for Halloween, just add some fake blood to the teeth! I love it.

I've just done a full on five minute silent shoulder-wracking laugh at those chicks. My DS is getting quite shirty with me. He's watching telly and apparently I'm not being quite silent enough.

Docket your DH you are a bonafide hatting genius. I can't believe you didn't win. You were robbed.

I'd forgotten about this grin


Have just re-read this thread, was hilarious the first time round and I've just PMSL again!! Utterly brilliant!

Is your DS going to be wearing it to school again this year docket?

I have tears running down my face. Brilliant.

If you'd done this at any of my dc's nurseries I'd want to be your friend grin

Brilliant bonnet, a message, perhaps? But they should be begging you to do the set and costumes for the next school play.

I am shock at a winning hat mentioned down the thread, getting 12 apostles at a table...on a HAT? Some people have far too much time on their hands.

I am new here and have just wet myself, woke up dd and made my dp look at me with a weird look just over the fox!
Shame it didn't win, but glad to see it lives to fright another day wink
