I love this little bonnet for sunny days, and it’s also just plain adorable! This baby bonnet brim is a quick addition to the Classic Baby Bonnet pattern!
It’s super easy and there are two cute ways to wear it, folded up or brim down!
With summer approaching, the brimmed baby bonnet will ensure that your babe is safe from the sun!

Sew a Baby Bonnet with a Brim
Cut out 2 brim pieces from cotton. Use a contrast fabric for one of them if you want an extra pop of color inside. Cut out 1 brim piece from fusible interfacing.
Fuse interfacing to the back of the brim lining fabric. Pin brim to the front of the bonnet, starting in the middle and winding around the front. Pin brim lining to bonnet lining and outer brim to outer bonnet.
Unfold both pieces and pin twill tape to the bottom front.
Pin both bonnet pieces together with right sides together (twill tape in between). Sew all the way around the hat and brim, leaving a 2-3″ opening at the bottom.
Turn right side out and press well. Topstitch over the opening to close the bonnet. And you’re done!
