Turning a handkerchief into a baby bonnet is a simple and sweet way to create a memorable baby gift. The intent of the handkerchief bonnet is that it will be worn as a bonnet for the baby’s homecoming or Christening, then put away. When the baby has grown up and is getting married, the stitches will be snipped out of the bonnet and the bride will carry it at her wedding as part of the ‘something old’ tradition. It can then be stitched into a bonnet again for the couple’s child.
