Miss Buford’s Bonnet – Jeannie Baumeister

Hand Embroidery

 

This lovely Baby Bonnet is a reproduction of Miss Buford’s Bonnet. The original was entirely hand-made and features the Hand Hemstitch used to secure both the Tuck and the Front Hem. The exquisite Hand Embroidery was worked in the Padded Satin Stitch, Trailing Stitch and French Eyelets. These stitches are often used in White work embroidery and to embellish fine antique garments. The original pattern closed in the back with buttons. I have stitched the opening shut on my bonnet and attached buttons to give it the look of the original. You have the option to stitch buttonholes in the back facing like the original (buttonhole directions not included). In class we will work on learning and perfecting the Hemstitching and Embroidery as we stitch our Bonnets. You will learn all the fine details needed to execute each stitch as I take you step by step through them. I will demonstrate how to finish this easy to sew Bonnet, which can be stitched at home by hand or machine. Techniques included are Hand Hemstitch, including how to prepare and hemstitch a Tuck. French Eyelets, Trailing Stitch and Padded Satin Stitch will be the embroidery stitches.

Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

While none of the stitches used are difficult to learn or stitch, these stitches are not be¬ginner stitches and not recommended for a person new to hand embroidery.

Embroidered Baby Gown brings to mind simplicity, a sweet baby girl, the smell of sunshine and fresh flowers, a soft lullaby.  The baby gown, made out of 100% Ulster linen from Ireland, is a perfect example of classic simplicity.  The pink linen is embroidered on the bodice – a beautiful bow shaped out of tiny rosebuds with a bullion rose in the center.  The rosebud theme is carried through on the back – tiny rosebud buttons decorate the back placket.  Bullions are the primary theme and you will learn the ins and outs, the tips and tricks of making perfect bullions.  Kit includes everything to make the size 12 month baby gown, and NO pre-class preparation is needed.
