This beautiful Baby bonnet is made from a wedding handkerchief (also handmade by me).. The back is adorned with white satin bow and the bonnet ties under the chin with satin ribbons.
Your bonnet comes nicely boxed with tissue paper, card with traditional poem, and bonnet inside. This is the perfect gift for baby showers, Christenings and Dedications
The tradition is for a baby to wear the bonnet home from the hospital or on baby's Christening or Dedication day. As the poem goes, the bonnet will be put away in a safe place till she or he gets married.

THE POEM: TREASURE HANDKERCHIEF BONNET POEM
I'm just a little hankie, As square as can beBut with a small stitch or twoA bonnet I will be. I'll be worn from the hospitalOr on my christening day, And after that be foldedThen carefully put away. When on that future wedding daySo we've always been told, The well dressed bride must alwaysWear something that is old. So what could be ore fittingThen to find little me, And with a few fine stitches snippedA wedding hankie be. And if perchance it's a boySomeday he'll surely wed, Then his bride can have the hankieOnce wore on his head.(Note: If given as a shower gift, make sure someone reads the poem aloud. Beautiful!)Although the sizes of babies heads vary, this bonnet would probably fit about a 0-4 month old. ~A perfect gift for that new little blessing~***My home is smoke free.*** If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
