Margie Advanced Hemstitched Bonnet Class Title: Margie Advanced Hemstitched Bonnet

Area of Study: Drawn Thread & Embroidery
Class Hours: 6
Class Type: Project
Skill Level: Knowledge of basic embroidery stitches will be helpful (but not required) for each student.

This elegant 6 month or infant sized bonnet teaches you the basics of hemstitching. This classic bonnet style contains delicate pink embroidery featuring an over abundance of granito flowers with eyelet centers and hemstitched bars. The front brim is hemstitched along the fold and adorned with ribbon rosette ties.

Stitches and techniques mastered during class time include: how to make ribbon rosettes, preparing your fabric for hemstitching, basic hemstitching, hemstitching along a fold, ladder hemstitched bars, stem stitching, traditional eyelets, padded satin stitches and granito flowers.

This bonnet compliments my Advanced Margie Hemstitched Daygown. Class time will concentrate on bonnet prep and mastering all embroidery techniques presented. Simple construction details will be discussed but all construction will be completed at home.
