Prairie Sunbonnet Tutorial

Bonnet 1

This is what I came up with trying to make a sunbonnet pattern. I rounded the corners using a protractor.

Bonnet 4

I sewed the three front pieces then turned and quilted every inch.

I then folded the ties as if I was making double fold bias tape and sewed down each side.

Next I hemmed the cape.

After that I gathered the raw edge and sewed to the short side of the crown.

Now I have a sunbonnet.

I had originally saw this pattern , but could not piece it together. The tutorial is fine though. 🙂 Next time I might use a different tutorial.
