Remember THE PILLOW that I made and wanted to put a handkerchief on it because is was so plain? Well, I found 21 vintage hankies on eBay for $9.95 (that includes shipping). They were so inexpensive because they were in not quite perfect condition. You can barely tell there's anything wrong with them! So, I used one for my pillow and here's what I did with some of the others. I made a hankie banner by stringing ribbon across my curtain rod and draping the hankies on the ribbon. Then I just used straight pins in the back to pin them onto the ribbon. This little project added so much charm to my bedroom...I just love it! (You can click to enlarge photos)
I put them over my mirrored closet doors too. This photo was taken looking into the mirror over my dresser.
Here is the one I used for my pillow.
I could see how collecting handkerchiefs could be addicting just like my button collecting!
