Where would be some good sewing patterns for a sun bonnet? Think Laura Ingalls type of bonnet.

My daughter, who is 4.5 wants one. I am not the greatest seamstress, but I can follow a simple pattern.


Thanks!

I have this one from Sew Baby. I made it for my 5yo for her bday and she adores it. She wears it all the time and looks so beautiful in it I plan to make one for my almost 3yo and my baby. I don't think it is hard, and if I am remembering correctly the directions were understandable.

I really like the look of this one from Amy at Angry Chicken. It's also a PDF, so no waiting for the postman to deliver it!

eta: I guess you have to click on "shop" and then "Sunbonnet pattern."
