This is a Lace Christening Bonnet to Wedding Hankie with 1" lace. With the snip of a few threads the Christening bonnet becomes a trousseau hankie to be used for the bride to be. The poem beautifully explains the concept. Tucked beneath the bonnet is a separate matching handkerchief for the mother of the baby and subsequently the mother of the bride. Beautifully packaged in an heirloom box. Poly cotton fabric.
The poem reads:
I was a little hankie, As square as square could be; But, with a little stitch or two, They made a bonnet out of me.
I’ll be worn at Christening time, Or some other special day; Then I’ll be gently pressed, And carefully put away.
On her long awaited wedding day, We have all been told; Every bride must carry, That something very old.
So what could be more fitting, Than to take out little me; A stitch snipped here and there, And her hankie I will be.
And what if Mother, in your joy, You shed a tear or two; Placed beneath the bonnet, Is a hankie just for you.

The fact that someone took the time to handwrite the gift note that I wanted included with my order was an excellent touch. The package also arrived beautifully wrapped. Wonderful presentation, and I'm very happy with the purchase.

I don't know. This was purchased as a gift and sent directly to the recipient. I could not examine it. The new mommy thanked me and said it was a wonderful idea. I will ask her about the quality of the fabric, and softness of the lace, as being suitable for an infant to wear. I will contact you if there is anything unsatisfactory, just for your info. She seemed very pleased, so I am confident that the gift was okay. Thank you.

It was a gorgeous gift for my new godson. It was very sentimental and it made his mom cry. And to top it off they sent it out very quickly so I was able to get it just in time for the baptism. Thank you!

Ordered this for a new granddaughter's Baptism. It arrived quickly and in good condition. Just wish the blanket with the embroidered Lady of Guadalupe could be obtained as hoped.
