Burgundy Irish Lace & Pearls Baby Bonnet - Size 0 - 3 months - FREE SHIPPING H04

Regular price $19.95

Stunning burgundy Irish lace baby bonnet with white pearls, will fit a baby girl up to three months. I used a flower pattern for the crocheted lace hat using a warm thick soft wool yarn, sprinkling teeny white pearl beads throughout the hat. The ties are crocheted with a cluster of the pearls at the end of each.

During the 1700's in Scotland, the time Mandy, Brianna and Roger's daughter in Outlander, would have been born, babies, young girls and women normally covered their heads. This openwork style of cap would have been worn by baby girls in the spring and summer for special occasions.

"I have noticed," she said slowly, "that time does not really exist for mothers, with regard to their children. It does not matter greatly how old the child is - in the blink of an eye, the mother can see the child again as it was when it was born, when it learned to walk, as it was at any age -- at any time, even when the child is fully grown and a parent itself."
~~~Mother Hildegarde in Voyager, Outlander series of books by Diana Gabaldon

Wouldn't this hat also be darling as a photo prop?

As with any hat with ties, always be safe and never leave your heavenly bundle unattended :-)
