Hanky Panky

I've been collecting vintage and replica handkerchiefs for a couple years now and I've seen so many gorgeous things to make with them...


If I wasn't married already, I would definitely make Save the Date cards on them, maybe for a baby blessing in the future (No, that's not an announcement)

I've thought about doing this as well, but I've got shutters in my house and it wouldn't really work.


These pillows are darling,


and you can't go wrong with bunting


  or a table runner.


Framing them is simple enough,


Or do what I did, and add them as an apron to a skirt for your munchkin. 



you can link to all the above pictures from my Hankies Board on Pinterest.

I think your choice of what to do with them was perfect...like JuJu! I do love those little curtains, though. Happy Monday, Annie - XOXOXO

I say frame the prettiest ones. They are like little works of art. Now where can you find lots of square frames fro a small amount of $$$$$???

I, too, collect vintage handkerchiefs. A friend gave me a stack that had been hiding in a box in a drawer and that had belonged to her grandmother. I'm making a quilt with them for her own new baby granddaughter ... Here's a link to a photo of the quilt top ... http://heatheracton.blogspot.ca/2012/03/i-sewed.html. My husband was impatient and held it upside down - I hope to get better photos after it's finished. I'm in the process of hand quilting it now.

You can also glimpse my framed handkerchiefs that hang in our dining room. They're all different, intricate, delicate white handkerchiefs framed between glass with narrow black frames. They look nice on our red walls with the red showing through the glass behind the handkerchiefs ... http://heatheracton.blogspot.ca/2012/01/happy-2012.html.
