    Mine were given to me many years ago, but check yard sales, flea markets, & thrift stores.
    Hope this will help you find some.

    This is beautiful. My mother had many decorative hankies that I inherited and didn't know what to do with. Thank you for your inspiration.
    Did you have a specific pattern that you used or was this designed on your own?

    Thank you for your response.

    Thank you !! I have hankies and was wondering what to do with them. I saw a quilt once that used them as womens dresses. Wish I had taken a picture. It was gorgeous !!

    Beautiful work - I've been collecting hankies for this project maybe someday I'll actually have something as beautiful as you do. A treasure for sure.
