Handmade and beautiful! These vintage intricately hand-crocheted baby bib and booties are precious!

Acquired at an estate sale, these keepsakes were made for a little boy all decked-out in blue, cream, and tiny accents of pink. Underneath the packaging, I found an even more adorable vintage baby card, complete with intact metal safety pin on the cover and cute little rhyme on the inside. This obviously was a cherished keepsake and truly you don’t find this kind of craftsmanship anymore!

The bib is crocheted in a tight stitching surrounded by an eyelet-type, scalloped edge with woven blue ribbon for accents.

The booties are done in cream around the edges and the top is baby blue with accents of pink in the form of a quaint little flower. The same blue ribbon tightens around the ankle and ties in a bow. They also have eyelet-type scalloped edging around the cuffs. I found the booties pinned together but they can be easily separated if you wish.

The card is signed from the family that sent these keepsakes: Sara and Elmer.

Cover:

Congratulations!
And a word to the new Mom and Pop…

Inside:

Don’t give it spankin’s
And don’t feed it pickles

Don’t wrap it up
In a blanket that tickles

Don’t mind its cooing
Don’t mind its chuckles

Don’t mind that tooth
That it cuts on your knuckles

Don’t let it wake you
When midnight is falling

Keep right on sleeping
In spite of its bawling

Don’t be so stingy
But tell that dear baby

That someone loves it—
And I DON’T mean maybe

Signed “Sara & Elmer, Love.”

I will include the box that the gift was given in, which happens to be an old greeting card box. This is truly a spectacular find. These two pieces are in excellent shape with slight vintage yellowing, but in MINT condition otherwise.

Bib measures: 8” x 7” (not including the ribbon ties)
Booties: 4 ¼” x 1 ½”
