Hello fellow craftster's.  I need to make a pioneer bonnet for a costume and can't find a simple pattern for one.  So I was hoping someone could share there pattern or sewing instructions w/ me.  I'd really appreciate it!

You can make one from a straw hat:
take a regular straw hat and cut a semi-circle out of one of the sides to make a bonnet shape. Bind the cut edge with bias tape, and (if you want) cover the straw with fabric. Or, bind the edge after covering it with fabric. Add ties to the semi-circle opening, and tie under your chin. The semi-circle that you cut will be the base of the bonnet, sitting at your neck.
Hope that makes sense!

If you want a floppy bonnet it's not quite the same, but it makes a really good straw bonnet.

Here's a pair of tutes:


There are five photos in the gallery, including a schematic for the pattern pieces.


This one is oh-so prairie Cheesy

All I did was Google "make a pioneer bonnet." Only had to look at the first 5 or 6 hits to get these ones. Good luck Cheesy

Yay! I made my first sunbonnet when I was in 4th grade--I was so obsessed with the little house books that I went as Laura for halloween several years in a row! I finally bought a nice white one at Notts Berry Farm when I went to California, but I should definitely get around to making one myself...
