Hankie Favors

Who doesn't have a love for vintage hankies?
 I happened upon a group of forty-some hankies this year
and knew they'd be the perfect favor for
a ladies' event at my church.
I needed about 60 for the event.
The group of forty-some was an incredible find.
The remaining 20 or so were easy to obtain.
Each vintage hankie was cleaned, folded, and arranged
within a specialty paper envelope.
I loved the dainty crocheted edge on the one above.

Can you see the incredible embroidery on this hankie?
The padded satin stitch is amazing.
Others like this scalloped edged beauty
had floral designs on soft cotton.

Watching the ladies choose their favorite made my day!
Do you have a favorite hankie?
I'd love to hear!
