It really is my favorite summer hat.
For Cora's hat, I substituted a ruffle for the piping in the brim (I saw it on a bonnet in Rae's photo pool and could not resist). This is really easy to do. I just took a long strip of fabric, folded it in half, and gathered it into a ruffle (using the pulling threads method, but next time I'll make it easier on myself and ruffle it with my serger). Then you attach the ruffle to the brim following the same instructions as you would sew the piping. It looks really sweet!
Now Cora will match her grandma's really big tote bag. :)
In conclusion, I really like Rae's Peekaboo Bonnet Pattern (can you tell?). Yay, bonnets!
