Some wedding hankies I embroidered for my neighbours grand daughter last year.

This was something new for me, I had never heard of wedding hankies, I'm very pleased how they turned out.
I used an Embird alphabet as it had to be quite small.

Those are lovely. Which alph of Embird did you use to get such a wonderful look?

Thank you. The hankie fabric was so thin and limp, I was a bit nervous about doing this, but I spray starched them about 2 or 3 times, and used an iron on paper underneath, and it worked perfectly. I had to use tweezers to remove the paper in the lettering, but it was worth it.

What a perfect rememberance for the people she loves! Hankies are so much more elegant than kleenex!
