This topic unfortunately always falls into my "so many ideas too little time" folder on my computer, where I store images of things I would love to make = "when I have the time". However...
- Aprons - Very possible to make aprons from old handkerchiefs, either through having more than enough of them to build yourself the flat fabric needed to make a whole apron, or through using the hankies as fillers to help finish the apron off.
- As a collar
- A pocket
- Drapes / Valence - So very pretty on a window.

Many people have heirloom hankies inherited from relatives, each tell the story of a life in a different era. Why not let me know what you've made using vintage hankies in the comments below:)
