Wonderful booklet with easy to follow instructions for constructing a special sleeve using heirloom sewing technique. by Nancy Coburn of Ginger Snaps. Available through this link.


This bonnet is so simple, but so sweet! Construction incorporates the basics of heirloom sewing by machine: joining lengths of lace and Swiss entredeux insertion with a tiny zig zag stitch. A ruffle of wide Swiss edging, rolled and whipped to the fancy band, frames the baby's face. A narrow piece of Swiss Nelona is rolled and whipped to the back. It is then gathered with ribbon run through a narrow casing.
