Hankie Wall Hanging

I have a soft spot in my heart for hankies so when I saw this pattern I just had to buy it.
It looks a little funky because I hung it over a light switch for for picture taking purposes so when it's hung permanent it will be on a rod and I will fiddle around with the hankies a little.
I took my favorite hankies, most of them are from family and friends and are near and dear to my heart.


This one I purchased myself at a near by antique shop, I usually don't buy much at antique shops but this little hankie really spoke to me. This is one of those shops where there is so much junk some of the isles you have to clutch your purse, hold your breath, walk though sideways and hope you don't sneeze for fear thinks will come tumbling down. So when I came across this I thought it must be fate and I had to have it.

I also added some buttons that are near and dear to my heart.

Oh - snap!! I was just about to type exactly what Kathy has said, and when I came here and saw her comment, I felt like I'd found my twin! I have a small collection of hand embroidered handkies that would look super on a wall hanging like this. Are you going to tell where you found the pattern? Pretty Please??
