Make an Embroidered Handkerchief for Dad this Father’s Day

Oh, the humble hankie: so much more than a way to wipe your brow. For many of us, these simple squares of cotton can hold memories of hope, heartache and happiness. Some handkerchiefs have been kept for generations to remind us of a loved one or a significant family event. They have been carried down the aisle with brides, tucked into the pockets of soldiers and offered in moments of joy and despair. This Father’s Day, bring back a momento of yesteryear and use this small canvas to create a fun embroidered design for that extraordinary man in your life.

    Haven’t see you “forever”…did you go on holiday or just take a break….sure hope that I just haven’t been seeing your posts??

    • Hi Trenie, It’s been a busy spring. My son Cooper graduated from High School, one of my best friends is retiring and I’ve got a fun “project” in the works, so yes, I’ve been a bit absent lately. 🙂 Thanks for noticing. 🙂

  2. Such a cool idea! I love it.

    Lovely to be catching up again. I look forward to seeing you pop up in my ‘in box’! The pencil case is my first project this morning. Keep on smiling and doing what you do so well. Karen x

  4. Fun idea-you could really customize it, too.
