Description

Mrs. Bert’s sweet handcrafted bonnets are a keepsake made for your little one to wear home from the hospital, for his or her Christening or any special occasion. After your baby out grows the bonnet, store it in the gift box. By clipping a few stitches, it is a hankie to be carried on their wedding day.
This is the perfect treasured gift for that special little one. Gift-wrapping is available to you. Each bonnet is shipped in a gift box with a poem.
Mrs. Bert is 84 and is one of 11 children that grew up in the country. As a young girl, learned the art of sewing from her mother and aunts. She brings this talent and vintage style in each one of her bonnets. And as each one is completed she says a prayer for that sweet babe that will wear this bonnet.
Each Bonnet is created from a beautiful quality linen handkerchiefs. Check our store for several styles that are available. The bonnets are
individually created by hand so expect slight differences in each one.
THE ELLINGTON BONNET is a gorgeous bonnet created from a Battenberg lace handkerchief sweetly gathered in the back with a small bow. Small white pearls are scattered on the top and sides. A 3/4 inch white double faced ribbon ties under the chin. This sweet bonnet is sure to be treasured.
Each bonnet can be custom made to your needs. Pearls can be added or deleted from any style in our shop. This handkerchief bonnet fits most newborns but can be adjusted by Mrs. Bert to fit a preemie up to a six-month-old baby.
Thank you for looking at our beautiful heirloom handkerchief bonnet.

Poem:
I’m just a little hanky
As square as square can be
But with a stitch or two
You can make a bonnet out of me

I’ll be worn from the hospital
Or on the Christening Day
Then I’ll be carefully pressed
And neatly packed away

For her wedding day
So we’ve been told
Each well dressed bride
Must have something old

So what could be more fitting
Than to find little me
A few stitches ripped
And a wedding hanky I’ll be

And if by chance it is a boy
Someday he’ll surely wed
So to his bride he can present
The hanky once worn on his head.
