I have admired the Peekaboo Bonnet pattern at Made by Rae for a while now, and last week I finally took the plunge and bought the pattern. We spent a few days camping with my brother's family and my parents in Lake Placid, NY, and instead of packing, or getting ready for our trip, I spent the night before making this hat. She didn't have a hat that fit, so what else was I supposed to do? You would have all done the same, right?
As I'm sure you all have heard, it's a really great pattern. It's fast, easy, reversible, doesn't use a ton of fabric, and very cute. I'm a sucker for a baby in a bonnet, as you might remember, and Baby Girl is adorable in her new bonnet.
For this bonnet, I used some blue cotton chambray, white bias piping and tape, and pink and white striped cotton from a thrifted men's button-up shirt. The scrap of pink and white fabric that I had left was an odd shape, so I had to piece together several pieces so make the brim. It's always a good feeling to use scraps! It makes me feel better about all the fabric scraps I compulsively save.
