Handkerchiefs are definitely from days gone by, but that doesn't mean they aren't adorable and handy at times. They are a nice memento for a special occasion like a wedding or prom to tuck away in a cedar chest or add to a smash book afterward.
Each of my handkerchiefs are actually 1/4 of a flour sack towel. The are not perfectly square and measure about 14 inches by 13 inches give or take an inch.
The patterns are transferred onto the hanky and embroidered by hand using colored embroidery floss.
