Hankie Bonnets

Two little hankie bonnets for a gift and my son (to be born later this summer).
These are made from small, laced-edged handkerchieves. There are several free patterns online. I cannot find the exact pattern I used online. The link was bad. (I made one for Spenser 18 months ago and still had the pattern.) There are also some poems to go along with the bonnets. They are for the "going home" outfit or for blessing/christening days. Then, with a few snips of threads, they become a "hankie" again and the bride can use it as her "something old" on her wedding day.
Here's a working link if you're interested.

Precious! They are called hankie bonnets? Does that mean they are actually made out of a hankie?
