Can anyone please send me a pattern of the old Sunbonnets they wore long ago. Like the ones on Little House on The Prairie? The cost to buy one is unreal. Could someone with the pattern please kindly send me the directions.

Americana Brown Calico Primitive Child Slatted Sunbonnet - The Gatherings Antique Vintage
A traditional Amish bonnet, the sort a young woman gets at her baptism. The brim is stiff and shaped. Shellacked bonnet board heavy cardstock was used in the past, but flexible plastics and plastic mesh are used now. It has a vintage look to the fabric and what I can make of the stitching. I would think this slat bonnet was machine sewn and not old.
Thought you should know. I link to products and services that I love from time to time. Some of these links I have an affiliate relationship with. What does that mean?
This is a traditional sunbonnet. It is made of woven-striped cotton fabric, and in this instance, is entirely hand stitched. Others in the collection are sewn by machine; either single thread, using a chain stitch, or twin thread stitches.
