How many vintage hankies, doilies and linens do you have in your home, tucked away in a drawer or closet? Between large quilts, I love to do a quick, small vintage piece. I bought this hankie a few weeks ago in a local antique store for $5. Even that is a little expensive for me, but I adored the handwork in the small squares.
I decided I wanted those squares to have some bling, so I backed it with 30 year old satin from my wedding dress (created by my mother-in-law so I have scrap).
And here is the “sandwich” before I got going on the quilting. I didn’t end up with much of the satin showing, but I really wanted the handwork to stand out this time.
VOILA!! The finished product. I added some glass beads for some sparkle. Do you have a special hankie or linen piece that you would like displayed and not hidden in a drawer? Let’s make something out of your treasure, email me!
