wedding handkerchief

20 June 2011

My sister-in-law got married this weekend and I needed a quick little extra gift.  I stumbled upon the old tradition of the wedding handkerchief and thought .... "Hey, I bet I can do that!" So, I took a trip to the local fabric store got what I needed and came back home to get started on the project! I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was!

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to be at the wedding; it was half way across the country.  So, I had my mother-in-law deliver the handkerchief the morning of the wedding.  I sent with it, a poem and letter describing the history of the wedding handkerchief and I explained the tradition that she could start for her own family!  She loved it!  What a quick, easy, and meaningful gift!  

I think I have a new favorite crafty gift!
