How did you start making bonnets?
I wrote a story about this very topic. Read more about it on the “The Story” tab. When you order your bonnet it is sent with a handwritten note about the design and fabric I used to start you off on your own unique story with your Kinderbonnet.
Are all your bonnets made from organic cotton?
Sometimes I can. However, most of the time - especially when using vintage fabrics the bonnet created was unique and made only once or twice. We can create certain trims and design features with different fabrics. Please contact me.
What is your sizing information?
Please refer to the sizing tab.
When do you release new bonnets?
I am a very busy mama. A tremendous amount of thought and unique design flows into every bonnet I create. Thus I have decided to design and release them according to the seasons. Check my Facebook or etsy account for updates on releases or contact me to create a custom bonnet for you or your child.
Bonnets other than custom bonnets can be found in my etsy shop named Kinderbonnets.
How about caring instructions?
Bonnets with lace trim should be hand-washed only. Bonnet using boiled wool fabric need to be hand-washed using a natural wool detergent. All other bonnets can be washed on gentle cycle with like colors. Pull into share and line dry.
Do you make all bonnets yourself?
I still sew most of them but have help from a local seamstress now. I use my free time, evening, hours, and some weekends to create. However, ideas about them occur daily during every day life with my and other children.
I want to know more about what you do, can I buy other items?
As a designer I strives to create a community by offering workshops in sewing, doll-making. and other topics of interest. We recently moved and have to get settled before I offer them again.
Via my Etsy shop you can order sewing E-Books and Doll Clothing Tutorials. Thank you for your continuous support.
Updates on Workshops can be found via Aloha Workshops.

Kinderbonnets and the Environment?
Our fabric is pre-washed in gentle environmentally friendly detergent.
Our earth and our childrens future on this planet is highly important to me and our family. We recycle in our home and studio and use mostly FSC Certified paper products. I do not use plastic packaging for bonnets. I tend to use brown paper or parchment paper to wrap and please re-use this material or let your kids scribble a piece of art on it. I highly encourage you to reuse previously male envelopes as we practice this in our own home.
