La Frivolite Bonnet Special Gift



This is the best way to display a tatted bonnet!
Just add a cute baby girl and your done!

This is a friends baby and they used this outfit for a very special family religious event, called a "sealing". 


To me the lightness of the cap lets them keep it on longer than other caps.
Bonnet is from Julia E. Sanders book 'Tatting Patterns"
One hundred year old pattern this year :)

I am not crazy about individual motifs but they are necessary at times, You may already know this tip but I make the 3 petals then add to doily tats quicker this way.
This went very fast and using a tiny close pin helps when tying final knot.
This is the follow along doily from Renulek Click on her name
for more information.

  2. That baby is adorable in that bonnet. What a great heirloom! Thanks for the tip on the motifs. I was not planning on doing it this way, but will try it out.

  3. Gorgeous baby, oh yes and of course the bonnet, such a lot of work and lovely to see it displayed as it should be. Really think the colours on your doily are great too, they go so well together.

  5. You can't foist a doll on us & say she's a baby, LOL ;-P And isn't that a doll's chair she's sitting on ?!!
    She is just adorable ! And she does like to dress up & face the camera, doesn't she :-))

    Wondering whether you could've used Single Shuttle Split Ring to close the last ring of each motif - would save on all that hiding ends business.

    1. I see what you mean but still would have to tie it off when attaching it to the doily?

  6. Gorgeous baby's bonnet, lovely pattern she looks beautiful with it.
    I am still on the last round hope to get that finished and this new round done by the time she prints the next round. That how I was planning to do the flower pieces in between.

  8. Baby looks as though she's enjoying her photo session in her beautiful bonnet! Could you join petals 3 and 4 and then hide ends in the 5th SSSR?

    1. I will need you to explain more and How do we know we don't need the picot on 5 ?

      Delete
    2. A picot on 5 wouldn't be a problem, but I don't think you could make a SSSR where there's a join? I think it would probably be easier to do it your way and hide the ends.
