Another Sun Bonnet
This little sun bonnet features ina few of the Enid books.
This is the first time I have made it.
I was inspired to have a go after seeing Tab's version
The drafting was easy.
The piecing was a little of a challenge, I've never been fond of sewing curves.
My tip with this one is PIN PIN PIN or hand baste the brim to the crown.
This has a lovely wide brim and a little flap at the back to cover the neck.
It opens out for easy ironing (if you iron!)
It adjusts as the back to fit for a long time.
And ties under the neck for those little ones who hate wearing hats.
Heather was happy to wear this bonnet for about 3 minutes.
She had to struggle a little to get it off.
But she was determined!
And finally managed to pull it off.
