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?

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

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.

Just bumping this for all the first time Easter bonneteers (like me) grin This is what you're aspiring to, people.

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

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

Bumping this because I've found the original pic of the bonnet. Can't have future generations of Mumsnetters being deprived of its glory.

MiniMaxi Fri 27-Jan-17 21:06:48

Thank you Niffler - a worthy bump - that is incredible grin

BigbyWolf Tue 21-Feb-17 11:12:41

Thank you Niffler I've just read the whole thread for the first time and was very disappointed when I realised I couldn't see the photo on Docket's profile.

Utterly brilliant!

Best thread and bonnet ever!
I'm sat here in stitches with tears rolling down my cheeks... Wonder if Docket every got her bonnet back or if the teachers held it hostage until Halloween?

OMG an Easter treat. Thanks for the photo! Had to use my imagination till then but the realities scarier shockgrintbusmile
