This keepsake bonnet for baby is fashioned from a handkerchief with hand crocheted trim, ribbon and bows. It is perfect for a Baptism, Dedication, or Christening ceremony. When the stitches are removed, the bonnet reverts back to a handkerchief for the bride or groom to carry down the aisle. The bonnet is adorned with an embroidered cross and a delicate stitched edging, both of which feature beautiful open-weave stitching that creates a look similar to entredeux. White satin bows decorate the corners and back of the bonnet, and other satin ribbons tie underneath baby's chin. The Keepsake Bonnet is made of 100% cotton fabric with a similar look and feel to linen. It comes in a simple gift box with the following poem printed on the back, as well as on a separate card inside:
A tiny square of linen and a dainty edge of lace
Designed into a bonnet to frame a Baby's face.
After Baby's worn it, fold and tuck away.
It will become a hanky for Baby's Wedding Day.
If the Baby is a boy, on the day he should marry,
This will be "something old" for his joyful Bride to carry.
