Bonnets–Horse Ear Bonnets, Fly Bonnets


I have two favorite hobbies!   If you follow my blog you will know it is sewing and horse riding!!!
So I found a way to combine the two, sort of!
During certain times of the year, riding a horse can become a bit of a challenge due to flies, mosquitoes, gnats you name it.  I looked into buying a crochet Horse Fly bonnet for my horse to wear, which has ears in it to protect the horse from flying insects gnawing at their ears!  To be honest the choices and styles are a little limited.  I was not that keen on the Fly Bonnets available, they were a little boring.
So like anyone that can sew I decided to make my own Fly Bonnet!

Talk about fun, the possibilities are endless and over the course of a few months I have made quite a few!
