1 square foot of handkerchief
linen. (It looks like an heirloom garment made from that.)
It's only about 1.50 a yard
too so you get tons of fabric for a couple of dollars.
This pattern will fit a 2-3
pound baby. The outside edges should be zigzagged to
finish the edges and then
have a small lace attached to it.
The flowers are done with
ribbon embroidery (a spider web rose with two lazy daisy stitch leaves)
Do the embroidery on what
seems to be the "wrong side"
because you will fold back
the bonnet on the dotted line.
Match circles (.) on the other
points and stitch together to form bonnet back.
Attach ties on either side
of folded "brim".
