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!
