I made a wedding hanky for each of the 4 granddaughters adding lace from the dress and for the 3 grandsons I made a small hanky square that could go into a tux pocket.
I embroidered each one...Grandma Carol loves you...and the date of her wedding. My niece carried it for her wedding. Hopefully, my son will take his for his wedding.
I love this idea very much! What a special gift for the grandchildren!
