I love love love this bonnet
The Peekaboo Bonnet pattern has been designed by Made-By-Rae and can be purchased from her website. It has very clear instructions which made it easy to make. It is reversible, one side being a very light denim, the other cotton. I interfaced the denim, because it had a slight stretch. I should of interfaced the cotton also as this would of helped the brim and centre band hold its shape a bit more. I had never made my own piping before, actually I have never even used piping, but that wasn't too much trouble to do and it finishes off the hat beautifully.
I joined the strap at one side with a press-stud and put a little button over the top to finish it off. The only change I made to the pattern was that I only joined the two sides of the hat together at the front of the brim and around the neckline - not through the centre band. I couldn't do it without my stitches showing on the wrong side and it looked really messy. Especially because I had to use a navy blue cotton one side and white on the other. It took a bit more time, but it was worth it. She wore it a few days ago and I couldn't believe how many people commented on it! Probably because you don't see too many bonnets being worn nowdays!
