I came across a little tutorial on a handkerchief tissue holder at Beach Vintage. It was so easy that it spurred me on to make one. I remembered I had a vintage handkerchief that I had bought at an antique shop in Mildura, so delved into my fabric box and discovered it would be just perfect for this project.
So here is what you do....Lay the hanky down with the wrong side facing you. Fold each end in towards the centre and iron. Sew a straight stitch along each side of the folded hanky. Insert hankys carefully inside. That's it!!!
However, the hanky I chose was screaming out for some embroidery, so I dusted off my needle and threads, made a coffee, sat in my recliner, switched the tv on and away I went.
Amanda Brook drew attention to the recipe which can be found here
We have had a couple of 21sts of late and one of them had a 'hippy' theme. Everyone got into the spirit of it and there were some great outfits. Here is a pic of our eldest son (ssh don't tell him, he hates having his photo taken let alone being pictured on a blog!!!) and his girlfriend. They looked like they had stepped out of the 60's.
