Vintage Handerkerchiefs

You might say I am obsessed with vintage handkerchiefs. I even love the cheery replicas that are available for 89 cents at the local five and dime. 

Just look at what a pretty picture a stack of these lovelies make! 

For the wedding, I wanted some of the ladies who were helping serve to carry off a vintage Farmchick look; so I designed these aprons for them to wear. No two aprons were the same. I ran out of time before the wedding to create an actual tutorial, but I very simply sewed 4 handkerchiefs together. Lastly, I folded a wide satin ribbon in half over the top, sewed it in place and voila! They are definitely not the sturdiest of aprons, but they sure looked cute at the wedding!

Happy sewing!
