So today I decided I wanted a sunbonnet like in the artist pictures for Little House on the Prairie. It would come in handy for mowing the lawn, yard work, or Western dress up day at school, etc.

I found some instructions at Mother Earth and sort of followed them. I was too lazy to make a pattern and just cut the fabric directly. I kept sewing the seams on the wrong side but I like the end result, it is good enough for me - what do you think? Instead of three layers of muslin in the brim, I used one layer of batting that I had on hand. And it took me more like 3 or 4 hours than the 2 suggested by the directions - it always takes me longer than instructions say it will because I mess up and or it takes longer to cut, etc.
