A New Use for Vintage Hankies!

Wow!  Marsha Greenberg is one talented clothing designer -- on a large or small scale.  When I say small scale, I really mean small scale -- try Barbie size, for example!  Although Marsha does design women's clothing, I know her for her vintage handkerchief designer line.  It's amazing.

In 2011, Running Press published Hankie Couture:  Handcrafted Fashions from Vintage Handkerchiefs, which features 125 gorgeous dresses on Marsha's custom-made doll.  The book features a pattern to get wanna-be hankie dress designers like myself started.   For vintage handkerchief collectors or admirers, this book is eye candy overload.

Marsha Greenberg also sells her handmade creations and her book through her colorful website.

Do you have some vintage hankies?

"And I give unto them eternal life;  and they shall never perish,
neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand."
John 10:28


  1. Wow! I keep seeing vintage hankie crafts, but never this one! So pretty!
    I wish I had some hankies!

  2. Yes I have quite a few of my own childhood hankies (bless my Mum for being such a hoarder!). I am also fortunate enought to have been given my husbnads grandmothers hankerchief which are still all boxed up. They have yellowed with age but the are soo beautiful and precious. One each will be carfully soaked and washed and given to each of my nieces and my daughter on their wedding day to carry. You have a very pretty blog !
