Some Vintage Hankie Ideas

Thank you Pinterest!
You make it so easy to find ideas.  And....
the best thing about you is that you help me keep these great ideas organized!

Come on over and see some of my boards if you're interested.  

Well, I've just started looking for ideas on what to do with my plethora of vintage hankies and look at what I found in just about 30 minutes of searching.  

No Sew or Low Sew projects:

Technically not a project, but it sure is pretty!

Lots of Sewing projects:

THIS is going to be fun!

Thanks for buzzing in!  I'm so glad to see you.
Do you have a favorite hankie idea?  One of your own?

  1. Wow, Such cute projects! I love the little blouse near the bottom.

  2. Great inspiration photos! I love the hanky bunting and the shirt! I have some hanky pillows in the works...

  3. what to make first?! Love the valances and the tiny could attatch a ribbon and make a door hangar! :)

  4. Hello....

    Ohhh...I just adore vintage hankies! I have several that once belonged to my grandmother. I have been using them as tea napkins...just so I can enjoy their beauty! These are all really great many beautiful ways to display and enjoy these beautiful pieces! Thank you so much for sharing them with us today!!!

    Warmest wishes,

  5. I'm OBSESSED with vintage hankies! Cannot get enough! I've made handmade quilts, sachets, sewn them into aprons, framed them in our guest cottage, given them as gifts. They're just so pretty! Have fun creating!


  6. What a bunch of great ideas! Thanks! I made a hankie bunting with flowers and ribbons but it's actually starting to feel too fusy for me as my tastes take a simpler turn once again. Mine is pictured at the very bottom of my blog. ♥

  7. I love all the pillows made with them. Guess what? Susan Branch commented on my blog on the post about her blog. She must have noticed where the traffic was coming from. I was so surprised.

  8. Thanks for the ideas; I'm sure I"ll find something out of these ideas to do with my grandmas hankies. :)

    Hugs, Shar

  9. The vintage hankies in the frames are too cute. Must find some. Thanks for the idea.

  10. Such fun and cute projects! I've used hankies to make lavender sachets. But I really love the bunting and the valance. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Super cute ideas! Pinterest is fun. I've just started finding my way around it.

  12. What would we do without Pinterest now? I love those little sachets in a drawer. I can't wait to see what you do with yours.

  13. Thank you, thank you, thank you. These are great ideas. I love my vintage hankies, too, and just never knew what to do with them. I'm definitely checking Pinterest out and soon!

  14. Love those ideas - can't wait to see yours when completed!

  15. Oh...just love these. My favorite is the valance. Wish I had a place for that!

  16. OK, you have made me a pintrest fan! I have pinned some of your loves, and added tons of my own. You can fine me at Gayle Roberts if you so desire! Love the hankies, I have one pinned to my purse pocked just showing. Love that... sometimes people think it is falling out though. Oh well...

  17. Oh, I love vintage hankies! I can't wait to see what you do with your stash. I think I'll dig up mine and go to work!
    Happy sewing!
