NEW White Linen Keepsake Hanky Bonnet with Cross Embroidery and Scalloped Edge
Baby Bonnets: Keepsake Bonnets: Hanky Bonnets
This beautiful white linen bonnet is made from a handkerchief edged with scalloped embroidery. The bonnet is beautifully embroidered with an openwork cross and embroidered dots across the sides and top of the bonnet. The sides are adorned with tiny white satin bows and the bonnet ties under the chin with white satin ribbons. The tradition is for a baby to wear this as a coming home cap or a christening cap. Saved as an heirloom, a few stitches are clipped so it reverts to a beautiful linen hanky to be carried by a bride on her wedding day. A poem explaining this lovely tradition is included.
The perfect christening bonnet for your baby.
Note: This bonnet was photographed on a doll with a 15" head circumference. Not sized, but will fit newborn to 3 months
Note: Bonnet is also available without dots. Lovely matching bibs are available. See below.
