Had to take a break from applique cord on the christening gown and decided to stitch down the silk ribbon ties for this sweet bonnet. It is a UFO from a SAGA convention over 10 years ago. On the Heirloom Smocking and Sewing Forum of Delphi we had a sew up your stash challenge that went for 3 months.
I finished up this project for that challenge. I need external motivation to get things done. This little bonnet is made from Swiss batiste and has a Madeira applique hem, granito flowers and a tiny bit of applique cord done as an embellishment on the front. I actually chose that as a practice for the applique cord on this gown. It had been quite a while since I had done it and didn't want to practice on the gown.
As always, click on the picture to make them larger. Not the best pics, I was in a hurry.
