Happy White Wednesday!!!
Here I have some of my favorite White Things, and wondered if
any of you have ever made the sweet little baptism bonnets with the
vintage hankies? I'm sure many of you know how to make these,
however thought you might like to see how I make mine.
So just keep scrolling down to the picture of the hankie and I will attempt to
explain my way to make these.
a few pinks mixed in,
over the years one piece at a time
little girl, Keaton, and the all white for her little boy, Atticuss, so let me tell you how
I put these together,
Start with hankie open, you will need a needle and thread,
any ribbon you like,
Fold hankie in half,
Now fold again, you have a square with four layers,
Tac the back of the square, just 2 layers, the back being the corner where there is not an
embroidered design, slightly overlap the points or corners and tac with thread while also
sewing a decorative ribbon also, that you will tie in a bow,
Now tac the two front corners, again with thread and this time, tac
the ribbon for a bow but also while the bow ribbon is open put put the chin strap ribbon end on top of this open ribbon and tac the
two pieces at the same time. You will then tie a bow over the cut end of
the chin strap ribbon. Finally cut your length off for the strap and tie.
I hope you can see on this Cabbage Patch Doll how the ribbons
are tacked on and how it will fit.
This is a spice cookie made from a copper Fluer des Le cookie cutter
that my daughter bought for me, it is my business logo, and there was one left
when she found it, how serendipitous!
Hope my tutorial was helpful, and you can understand it,

PS: Is anyone else having trouble composing your posts? My sentences and single words are going all over the place, and I have to keep chasing them to try and put in line, hope it is not my computer, just curious, or maybe I am not doing something right? Just leave a comment if you have any ideas, thanks!
