My husband's grandmother is a sweetheart. She religiously cut coupons for me every week and sends them to me so that I can save money. A number of years ago she gave me a few vintage handkerchiefs and I have been meaning to do something with them for a while now. I ran across this post on Once Wed about hand dyeing clothe napkins and thought it would be a great treatment for handkerchiefs too.
I dyed three handkerchiefs and was really happy with the result of a bluish tin to each of their edges. It seems like a really delicate treatment, but artistic at the same time. Now I need to decide him I'm going to frame them or use them as they were intended and give up my Kleenex habit.
