Sun bonnet success!

After that floppy, mis-sized sun hat, I climbed back onto the saddle of the sun-hat sewing horse (tortured metaphor!) and I'm so glad I did! This bonnet turned out great. It's a bit ridiculous looking but does a GREAT job shielding Erin's face from the sun. She likes it because it doesn't flop down into her vision. The pattern was really easy, too! I changed it just a little bit--did edge-stitching around the perimeter, and used my machine to sew down the little pleats at the back (vs hand-sewing them as called for).
