I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I am on an embroidered hankie binge right now. My friend loves all things Halloween and spooky. I couldn't resist stitching this up for her.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

 You hand stitch these? Oh my goodness this is too cute. How long does it take you to make one... And if you don't mind me asking, what does the back look like? I would LOVE to attempt something like this but I think it would be really hard. I absolutely love your embroideries though.

This one took about two nights (6 hours). I have already sent this one off but I will take a picture of the back of the one I just finished. It looks pretty much like the front but messier-knots, a few cross over stitches.

It is so easy! The only issue with handkerchiefs is that fabric is flimsy so it has a tendency to pull.

Thanks all!

Wow! That looks great. Right after I posted that message I thought about it and was sure you were going to say you did them on a machine. The fact you really do hand stitch them make them even more impressive and fun!

Look at you! The backs are so interesting, I know that's where the knots and stuff live but, especially with a spooky design, I like them as much as the fronts!
