'Christmas tree & doves' souvenir handkerchief
A hand-printed Christmas souvenir handkerchief.
Designed to be embellished using your favourite embroidery threads, enjoy adding scattered appliqué detail using precious fabrics.
Each handkerchief is vintage, found and hand-printed on by me, Jessie, in person, making each one a unique creation, especially once embellished by you.
This also means each hankie is a one-off so when ordering this item each one will be different, but the print design will be as see here.
Marks, spots, damages must be embraced! I wash and clean each hankie thoroughly but often there are marks that cant be removed. I would as I do suggest embracing such marks by stitching in to and over them, so to incorporate in to your overall design.
This simple project celebrates two of my favourite techniques, hand-stitching and fine needle-turned appliqué. I hope that you too can find joy in the process of slow stitching and making marks with your needles, threads and fabrics to create your own unique stitched story.
I suggest selecting the following items to combine with this print:
* Your favourite embroidery threads
* Your favourite fabric scraps
* A selection of sharp sewing needles
* A pair of sharp scissors
Once complete your handkerchief can be gifted to a beloved friend or family member or framed and placed in your own home.
