Hankies are coming back. Not only are they good for the environment, but do you really want to take a crumpled old Kleenex out of the pocket of the coat you're wearing for the first time since last winter, instead of a lovely embroidered handkerchief?

I wouldn't.

So I made some cute ones to give away and keep.  So far I have four finished, and am working on a matching tea towel and some more hankies.



And some embroidery close-ups:





Thank you for looking!

Amber.

I think that is just wonderful!  I love hankies, I collect antique ones.  These turned out really fun!  I must start using mine more.  Where do you find the right thickness fabric?  Is it just a basic cotton?

Very cute, and I love the running stitch along the edges. I bought a package of 100% cotton hankies earlier this year, just plain white ones that I found in the men's dept. of a nice clothing store (also found some fancier men's ones that I embroidered for DH for his birthday). I've been wanting to embroider some for female relatives and girlfriends who I think would prefer hankies over kleenex, but wasn't sure how to feminize the hankies -- I think a running stitch is a good way to do that, in addition to whatever else I embroider in the corners.

Love 'em.  Perhaps 'matryoshka' translates to those wooden nesting dolls, that's what they look like to me.  They are fab.  If you didn't draw them yourself, I would love it if you could share the link where you found the images.

These are great.  I make hankies all the time for my dad never thought about for myself.  My hubby does not use them but hmmm I might.

I think they are very pretty, I like your detail work on them.  Smiley
I love hankies but honestly never end up using mine.

Those are so cute!  I don't know if I could use them, they're almost too pretty.  Cheesy
