Recently I wrote about participating in an altered hankie swap. Seven of us started with a vintage hankie, added our own alterations, and each person adds something else, until eventually we get our own back, but totally altered. This month I had Darya's. She decided not to use a vintage hankie, which might be delicate, but instead used a man's handkerchief. Here is what she did to it.
I cut a heart from a piece of a vintage quilt (a gift from my friend, Cat) and sewed it on by hand with pearl cotton. Then I sewed on old buttons and added blue french knots to bring out the tiny blue flowers in the fabric. This is what I will send to the next player in the swap.
