Spent an afternoon in the sewing room for a change! When friends have a new grand-daughter you are inspired to make a 'welcome gift". This is a project that uses heirloom sewing techniques to make a hankerchief that then is folded and ingeneously sewn into a bonnet for use by the newborn....then tucked away and brought out to be used by the grown-up daughter as a hanky when she is a bride! It is a old idea and not mine--I first learned how to make it from a Martha Pullen show, I believe.

I love Martha Pullen! I do a fair amount of heirloom sewing myself. I do hope you will join Christian Artisans! I think you would fit in well over there.ReplyDelete
