The Peekaboo Bonnet Sewing Pattern is a digital PDF sewing pattern that you purchase, download, and print at home. The reversible sunbonnet sewing pattern includes detailed step by step instructions on how to make this adorable bonnet with piping around the brim and band. Instructions include color photographs and full-sized pattern pieces for EIGHT sizes (wow!) for babies and children. Seam allowances are included on all pattern pieces. Hints on sewing with piping and modifying the pattern for better fit are also included!
This bonnet is an easy and quick project! The techniques beyond sewing straight lines are: sewing curved lines, sewing with piping, and gathering. Clear instructions for all of these techniques are given (they are not prerequisite skills). Appropriate for a beginner who has machine-sewn simple projects before.
