Handkerchief decoration…

I’ve just spent a few days with my mother who lives by the coast, I had a lovely time but didn’t prepare my little blog before I went away, so I’ve been looking though my photos to see what I have made but not yet blogged about and I came across these handkerchiefs.
When my niece got married I thought I’d be original and decorate these hankies for the day – oh how daft I am, there’s a whole industry out there!
But I had fun decorating these anyway…

Mother of the Bride

This was for my sister…

For my sister’s handkerchief I drew on the lettering in pencil, then added the flowers to the large letters with Sharpie fabric pens and when dry added the purple colouring to the letters, then added the smaller writing and the date. I tried to match the colours of the wedding group.


Decorated by my daughter…

The bride’s big sister is a pilot, my daughter decorated this one for her cousin. Using fabric felt pens is such a great way to personalise items, and a white handkerchief is a blank canvas for your design.

Mmmm…. I’m realising that I didn’t do much with these! I presume I did one for the bride but can’t locate a photo of that one… my daughter did this one for her grandmother – who is obviously also the bride’s gran!




The ribbon added a nice touch I thought, I purchased enough for the wedding gift wrapping too.
I’ve also used this for significant birthdays and went through a phase of presenting little jam jars of artificial flowers with a personalised ribbon tied around the neck of the jar…

Well, I’m already busy making something so should have something new to blog about next week!
Love Rosie
