Do you have one in your pocket? or in your handbag?
Do you lay out handkerchief for your husband or with your children's school uniform?
In Japan, everyone carries at least one if not more, it is part of their culture.
I LOVE handkerchief!!! My handkerchief drawer is as big as my undies drawers *grin* Thought I'd share a simple how to - making your own handkerchief with a gauze backing
Gauze fabrics - I have a lot of fabric baby nappies (rescued from somewhere)
Fabric for the top (FE size would suffice)
Sample hanky (to measure for size)
1. Use the sample hanky to cut your gauze fabric
(I am using 2 pieces of gauze fabric for extra absorption)
2. Repeat the same process as number 1 with the top fabric
3. Line the main and gauze fabrics with the right side facing and secure with pins
(don't worry if the sides don't meet)
6. Turn, press and edge-stitch all around
And you are done..
