A Quilted Sun Bonnet

I enjoyed making my last bonnet so much I thought I'd make another, this time a Victorian sun bonnet using Romantic History's wonderful tutorial. It was super quick to make and very easy.  A nice project for a wet summer afternoon with the hope of better weather to come! 

The brim is quilted in a diamond design and the edges are piped. The brim can be folded back out of the way when you need to see a little bit more around you. I'd quite like to make another in a sheer fabric and cord the brim instead.
