The Keepsake Bonnet
- This charming little keepsake holds a magic all its own,
- As now it is a bonnet for your baby's first trip home.
- Or use it for the Christening, an occasion very dear,
- When friends and family join together and loved ones gather near.
- Then keep it as a treasure, for here's the magic key,
- By snipping a few stitches, a hanky it will be.
- A hanky to be carried many years from now,
- As the bride walks down the aisle to pledge her wedding vows.
- Whether carried by your daughter or your son's new bride-to-be,
- It will mean much more as “something old” because it's charmed with memories.
Hankie Bonnet Poem
- I am just a little hankie, as square as can be,
- But with a stitch or two, they've made a bonnet out of me.
- I'll be worn home from the hospital, and on special days,
- And then I'll be carefully pressed and neatly packed away.
- Then on the wedding day, I've been told,
- Every well dressed Bride must have something old.
- So what would be more fitting than to find Little Ole Me?
- A few stitches snipped and a wedding handkerchief I will be!
- And if per chance, it is a boy, someday he'll wed,
- And to his Bride he'll present the handkerchief once worn upon his head
