Vintage Hankie Baby Blankie

I have a drawer full of new and vintage handkerchiefs that I have been collecting from yard sales, estate sales, antique markets and ebay.  I get them out and lay them in arrays that I hope will look good, but in the end I fold them back up and tuck them back into the drawer.   The other day I got them out again and picked the first 12. The hankies were all a light pink and a soft blue.  I laid them in a 3 x 4 array and had an inspiration.    This could be a vintage hankie baby blankie!  It looked the perfect size to put in a crib or lay across a tiny bed.  Here's what it looks like:


  1. So pretty, and such a great idea to use up your precious hankies. Are you keeping this for future babies in your family?

    1. I should have...I sold it. But I have lots and lots more hankies!

  2. I have so many hankies that I've collected from yard sales too. This is a great idea!
