Let me just say, I LOOOOVE hankies.  I used to think they were gross, but recently, after learning that there is actually no live bacteria in snot (what?  This changes my entire world view!), I decided to try them out.  I am never going back to tissues.  My red, chapped winter nose is now a thing of the past.  I don't know why, but hankies are so much easier on my skin. 

So anyway, I've started buying and stitching lots of hankies.  They are great little projects.  I did this one to be my first give-away on my blog (stop by and put your name in, if you like it!).  The pattern is from needlecrafter; it's one that I've been wanting to put on something for awhile.  I really like this little hankie; it looks like spring at a time when looking out my window reminds me that we are unfortunately still stuck firmly in winter.

Thanks for looking!

I love hankies, and your deer is so cute Cheesy

I'd have a hard time wanting to blow my nose on it though, lol.

Your hankie is SO cute! But what did you mean when you said that you were buying AND sewing hankies? And what kind of fabric are you using for your hankies? I don't mean to ask a lot of questions, but I'm interested in making my own and I don't really know a thing about them.

Thanks for the comments!

Gothicmidnight, I bought this hankie and stitched on the deer, but I have sewn other hankies from scratch.  I generally use scraps of soft cotton fabric for that.  I had a horrible, two-week flu earlier in the winter, and made a bunch of hankies out of some  extremely soft tissue jersey.  The rest of my body was miserable, but the soft hankies kept my nose happy.  To make one of your own, just cut your fabric into a square, hem the edges, and add any embellishments that you like.
