I love the colors and patterns of vintage hankies. I have my grandmother’s hankies and am always thinking of ways to use them without cutting them (I don’t know why that bothers me!). So here is a way to use them to wear them! Make them into a beautiful scarf! This handkerchief scarf would make a lovely handmade Mother’s Day gift!
Find 6 or so handkerchief scarfs that are the same with. This did take some effort and I had to supplement with some handkerchiefs I found at an antique store. They usually cost less than $2.00.
Sew the handkerchiefs right sides together. Sew as close to the rolled hem of the handkerchiefs as you can.
Now you have a fun new accessory or a beautiful handmade gift!
You can also make these adorable handkerchief lavendar sachets with vintage handkerchiefs. They make such a beautiful yet calming gift!
