Hearts and Hankies


Never too early to jump into the next holiday.  Thank goodness they are spread out so nicely.  Perfect for vintage themed hankies.


I know they are in here somewhere.


Simple instructions found at the Moda Bake Shop...Cuts were made and pinned in no time at all.


Perfectly sized for sweet treats or a few cards.


I loved how fast they went together and how easy they were to alter.


I can't decide if I want to add the embellishments that the original pattern calls for.  I am going to let them sit and cook a while.

Join me over at Holly's for more Dotty inspiration!

Beautiful creations. I have trouble cutting a hankie but have been working hard at asking myself what am I saving this for and using the "good stuff". Bravo to you! You took something already pretty and made it beautiful and gave it purpose. How perfect is that!

Stinkin' adorable lady. That's quite the hanky collection you have there. I got a bunch from a good friend and turned them into a 20 foot bunting. They hang in my workroom where I can see them everyday.

Big Hugs,
Meri

Scrap for Joy said...

I think I have the directions for these pockets somewhere but I don't know if I'll actually ever make one. Yours are adorable and I love that you used hankies. (People under 35 don't even know what a "hankie" is I bet.) All of your projects are knock-out beautiful Renee! The apron you made for Laurie is so sweet!
