I love old hankies, teatowels & embroidered pillowcases.
I admit to having a good sized pile cleaned a pressed sitting in my fabric stash.
In my search of "what to do with ...."
I stumbled upon this handkerchief to bonnet tutorial.
I tried it out and captured along the way how I did it.
This tutorial will show how to upcycle/relove an old handkerchief
this could be a handmedown from grandpa or a thrift shop find
either way this lovely something old
will be something new and can continue its journey as such for generations
Washed and pressed handkerchief, ribbon, thread, large needle, safety pin, scissors
Here I used colored ribbon & thread, feel free to use whatever colors you choose
Fold & iron two sides, the back side about an inch, the front side about 2-3 inches
Loosely stitch the small fold down, this will be the back side

This one will be listed along with a few others in a day or two.
I'd love to hear your thoughts
