Project Resources


Step 1

Cut a 12-in x 18-in piece of shelf liner.

Step 2

Using the Pilgrim Bonnet Pattern for reference , mark the placement of the back seam, grommets, and brim.

Step 3

To shape the back of the bonnet, overlap point A to point A and point B to point B. Thread the twine into the needle and hand-stitch from A to B.

Step 4

Fold down the center back flap about 2 inches up from point A. Make two cross stitches on either side of the flap, sewing through all the layers to secure the bonnet shape.

Step 5

Apply the grommets according to manufacturer's directions to the two spots you marked in Step 2.

Good to Know

Add a small scrap of shelf liner on each grommet point for extra thickness.

Step 6

Just a few stitches complete the back of this easy pilgrim bonnet.

Fold back the brim along the dashed line.

Step 7

For each tie, cut three 36-inch lengths of twine. Holds the three lengths together, fold in half, and loop through the grommet, then pull the twine through the loop to secure. Braid the twine and knot the ends. Add a drop of glue to the twine knots and at the grommet placements.
