These two pictures are of an antique baby bib from the late 1940s. The thread seems to be a silk or rayon; it drapes beautifully and is somewhat shiny. The bib is the small kind that you use to keep babies from drooling on their Sunday best. I would like to make a couple of these for some expected grandbabies, but I don't know where to find this kind of thread or exactly what stitches are used. I'm sure there must be experts out there somewhere.
