Delicate Cotton and Lace Hankie Bonnet and Fancy Scalloped Edged Cotton Bib


Babies look so sweet wearing an old fashioned bonnet. Little hankie bonnets made out of handkerchiefs have become very popular baby gifts. Often these hankie bonnets become family heirlooms as the bonnet used on the baby's baptism or christening are used once again as "something old" for their wedding day. The intricate lace on this 100% cotton handkerchief is soft and detailed. Hand wash air dry recommended.

I will be happy to personalize this hankie bonnet with baby's initials and a delicate little cross. Personalized items make special gifts. Please include babies initials and color thread to be used for initials when placing your order. My favorites color threads are cornflower blue for little boys and soft pink for little girls, but please specify your choice. Bonnet includes a sweet embellishment where tie is attached to bonnet.

Comes with the following poem:

The Magic Hankie
I am just a little hankie, as square as can be;
but with a stitch or two, they've made a bonnet out of me.
I'll be worn home from the hospital, and on special days,
and then I'll be carefully pressed and neatly packed away.
Then on the Wedding, I have been told,
every well dressed Bride must have something old.
So what would be more fitting than to find Little Old Me,
a few stitches snipped and a Wedding Handkerchief I will be!
and if per chance, it is a boy,
someday he still will Wed.
To his Bride he can present
the "Magic Handkerchief" once worn upon his head.

The fancy bib for baby boys and baby girls is just perfect for a special day. They are a terrific choice to complement a baptismal outfit. This lovely bib has two scalloped edged layers of soft 100% cotton that is beautifully edge finished with satin-stitching and sweet satin ribbon ties. The scalloped edge cotton fancy bib has white fabric for both layers. This bib measures approximately 9" wide by 9" long and has a neck opening of approximately 3.75" wide by 4" long. Please include baby's name and special occasion date to be embroidered on bib when placing your order. Thread will match that used on hankie bonnet.

I do have other style bibs available at the same price should you be interested.
