My Creative Space


I'm still playing with my gorgeous hankie stash .
It seems such a shame to not let them be seen .


I hemmed the edges of some of them and
threaded some wire through .
Vintage buttons were strung on beading wire .


Now I have a very pretty lightshade .
It took about 10 minutes from thought to completion .
I love a quick craft fix !

More creative spaces here .

Another fabulous idea Clare!

After your last hankie post I went looking for some because I was inspired but I didnt find anything as beautiful as yours.

Soooo pretty. I have a vision of an entire little girl's dress made solely from vintage hankies. I have a bunch, but I need some that are the same size and style.
