28 years ago I made a bonnet for my first niece, it was made out of a hanky and when she married she undid the stitches of the bonnet and used it to make the ring bearer pillow. How awesome it is to make a bonnet for her baby girl that will be born tomorrow. Welcome to the world Callie Parker!

It is really easy. You can buy a hanky. I made mine, 12x12 piece of fabric. Placed lace around all sides to make the hanky. Then fold over the front maybe 3/4 the length of the hanky and then fold the back to meet the front. Tack down, gather the back side at the bottom tightly and tie off. Then just sew the ribbon on for ties. If this is confusing let me know and I will try to post some pics or something to make it easier to understand. It really is simple. There are several saying that you can put with the hanky when giving as a gift. If your interested let me know and I will get them to you.

I have never heard of this but what an awesome thing to do with a hankie. Flowers for you and the best of everything this world has to offer for little Callie.
