This bonnet is so simple, but so sweet! Construction incorporates the basics of heirloom sewing by machine: joining lengths of lace and Swiss entredeux insertion with a tiny zig zag stitch. A ruffle of wide Swiss edging, rolled and whipped to the fancy band, frames the baby's face. A narrow piece of Swiss Nelona is rolled and whipped to the back. It is then gathered with ribbon run through a narrow casing.
