I’ve had these handkerchiefs for years and years, and they’ve ended up with brown spots on them, the sort that don’t come out in the wash.
So, in an effort to upcycle them….
….I’ve been embroidering leaves and bees over the brown spots.
I tried to match the thread colour to that used in those lovely flowered corners. I think they look nice, even if my satin stitching is not the best.
I’ve also been finishing up some winter pyjama pants to fill a rather chilly gap in my wardrobe!
I plan to use the scraps of this lovely fabric to make Hazel a pinafore dress.
First, however, she’s planning a long-sleeved top with Tiffany, the sort that’s nice and simple and can be made in multiple colours. I’ve overheard talk about buttons at the front and a circular collar, so we’ll see how that turns out!
Anyways, see ya!
