White Wednesday -Baby Anna's Circa 1920 Bonnet

Original Bonnet.  Made from a soft Organdy.
Isn't it Beautiful.  So unusual.  I was attracted to it right away.  
This Heirloom Bonnet is owned by my friend Jamie. 

Side View.  
See the Antique Featherstitching along the Crown and the Brim pieces.
It was made for Baby Anna by her Mother.

The Embroidery was worked primarily in Satin Stitch Embroidery.  
For more history, please see this Post!

The Crown.
Just as fancy as the rest of the Bonnet.

Old Fashioned Baby copy of Anna's Circa 1920 Antique Baby Bonnet.
I now have the pattern for sale on my Web site.  You have the option of including all the materials with the pattern.

This is my White Wednesday, the day I share lovely white treasures with you.  I tour along with Faded Charm to peek at other peoples white treasures!

Jeannie, I was so nice to finally meet you at the market at the SAGA convention. I so enjoyed my time there meeting with so many warm and wonderful ladies and seeing all their beautiful work...I am so inspired and hope to use some of these beautiful techniques in my own sewing/designing. Hope to see you again soon.
