Antique Christening Bonnet Class


One of the classes I'm teaching for the National SAGA Convention this year is "Antique Christening Bonnet".  I've decided to make up the bonnet in the same materials I will be using in  the students kits for this year and I  couldn't help myself, I re-designed it!  Well, I drew up a new embroidery design, anyway.    I am now ready to cut out the pattern and begin stitching.  I can't wait...my fingers are itching to get going on it.


  Before I print out the pattern for the entire class, I want to see it finished to make sure I still love it as much as I did on my  design board.  I think I will, I like it even better than Bonnet #1. I will give my students both designs.   It's a pretty design and the antique lace is lovely.  The fabric is a soft ecru Swiss Batiste.


Lovely Antique Lace for Kits!

Too funny to see Martha's post as I was wondering why we did not sign up for this one as well... :) Probably as we thought you would tire of us by then.
