I've been making quite a few mantillas lately, and enjoy trying to fulfill the specific requests that people often make, like the brown cotton lace one that was recently asked for.
I love making bonnets too, but am sad that sometimes I don't get to see them being worn by their new owners. If people buy anything from me, I love to have photos of them or whoever it has been bought for, modelling it.
|This one was sent to Japan.|
|This was used for a Baptism at my Parish. Sadly, I didn't get a photo of baby in it, though!|
|This was made for baby Grace's Baptism - |
I think the photo was taken on another occasion, though.
|I love the delicate lace edging framing the face.|
|But I'm so glad I get to see this one being worn every Sunday!|
Maria doesn't seem to mind keeping it on through Mass, either.
A nice easy to wear, elasticated bonnet with brim. £7.50 in polycotton, £10.00 in pure cotton.
