Delicate Cotton and Lace Hankie Bonnet


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 you can specify any color you like. Bonnet may include 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.
