This adorable pixie bonnet has been a staple in the EHB store for many years now.  It is the perfect compliment to any outfit from fall through spring.  This style bonnet is great because it covers your child's ears, keeping them protected from the wind and cold during our chillier months, and the ties make it slightly trickier for your little one to rip off of their head.  I am excited to be offering it to you now as our first ever digital download pattern!  I hope you enjoy it!
