Smocked Bonnet.

This Bonnet  is in my Smocked Baby Clothes pattern.
This is the Classic Smocked Bonnet.

I love the way it frames a Baby's face. 

 They look like the center of a Flower!

Side View of Bonnet.

My friend Lorraine P came up with this finish when she was smocking Premie Bonnets.
Do you see how the edge is finished?  It has been serged with the Rolled Hem on a Serger.  And no fancy thread was used.  Regular Dual Duty Thread in colors.
I love this finish.

Adjustable back, closed with a ribbon.

This is my White Wednesday for today with Faded Charm.

"There are two ways to reflect light:
to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."
