Vintage Hankie, Framed!
I should probably start to title these pieces because I make so many! Vintage hankies have become a bit of an obsession, maybe because they are easy to find, inexpensive and can be finished in an afternoon. I created this as an auction item for an upcoming bowling tournament I’ll be doing with the hubs. I needed to raise $160 for my spot, I had a $300 bidder, score!!! I was so excited to let this piece have a new home and make some money for a worthy group, Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
Details are simple, a vintage hankie on a Dupioni silk background. I used two layers of Hobbs batting, 80/20 on bottom and wool on top, Glide thread, and a few Swarovski crystals for embellishment. Framed, the finish piece is 16″ square. Thanks for stopping by!
