Peekaboo Bonnet

peekaboo1

A new bigger bonnet to replace her teeny tiny one from last year that I tried to unsuccessfully shove on her head the first sunny day we had last month, resulting in a squished brain and some almost-popped seams.

This new one, in the  1T/2T size, is comically large (read: adorable), but it stays on her head, blocks the sun, and she’ll wear it for a decent amount of time before getting fed up. And, bonus, it will fit at least through this summer, if not next year as well.

I highly recommend the pattern, and would also suggest taking the extra tie and hand-stitch the final seam – it makes it fully reversible, and looks really nice. And, bonus: PIPING!
