Here are the baby bonnet and booties that my great niece wore for baby dedication on Mother's Day at our church. My mother made the bonnet and I made the booties. The patterns are old workbasket patterns from February and March of 1969. We used size 20 DMC Cordonnet Special thread and Lizbeth Baby Pink. I was very concerned that by using size 20 thread, that I was making booties for a toddler. However, the booties fit perfectly. My great niece was born in December and weighed a little over 10 lbs. She looked like a baby doll. My mother also made her an heirloom dress that was absolutely gorgeous.
I would like to thank Bonnie (swankmb) who helped me find the patterns for these and offered wonderful advice. You were a lot of help.
