Whitney of Whit B. Nimble says,
Vintage hankies are gorgeous, inexpensive, and easy to find at antique malls and markets. Personalizing one with a simple design makes for a sweet gift for a friend (how cute would it be in a get-well-soon gift basket?!), or framed art for your home.
Whitney goes on to share step-by-step instructions for adding a bit of simple embroidery to make a hankie one-of-a-kind special. See her tute.
