White Wednesday - Antique Bonnet
Hello! This week for White Wednesday I am sharing a beautiful hand-crocheted antique baby bonnet. I was lucky to find this at a yard sale several years ago. It is a very soft cotton thread. The original ribbons were tattered, so I put in new ones. Here's the beautiful back:
It fits a baby from about 2-4 months old. When I see a beautiful antique, I wonder about the original owner. How did she have time to stitch this with all the other chores required of Victorian women? How many babies wore this sweet little cap? I wish I could find a vintage pattern for a similar bonnet and try it myself! Linking to White Wednesday at Faded Charm.
