Antique Lace and a Baby Bonnet

Lace belonged to Beatrice Elizabeth, born in 1905
My Friend has her Grandmothers lace.   Passed along by her mother. 
It is a fabulous treasure.
And she loves to share it with her family in the form of Baby Gifts.

This lace is as fine and luscious as it looks in this picture.

It came to her rolled on a wooden spool.
This is the lace she choose for the Baby Bonnet she is making her niece who is expecting a baby.
This baby will be the Great Great Granddaughter of Beatrice Elizabeth.

The fabric is a pale pink and the lace is antique white.
She used an OFB baby bonnet pattern. With fabric ties.

The lace will form the Bonnet Brim.

Outfit is still in progress but Baby Shower is coming soon!
The Bonnet is part of an entire ensemble to be given at her nieces Baby Shower.
Slip, Bonnet, Daygown, Booties and an amazing quilt.
