Sweet Doll's Dress Made From A Vintage Hankie

Projects Made From Vintage Hankies   

Recently I added a brand new group on I Antique  for collectors of  Vintage Hankies . This is a wonderful group for sharing images, stories and resources about collectble hankies and upcycled projects made from hankies.  While searching for photos to share with the members of the Vintage Hankies group, I came across a lovely post on making handdmade doll clothes from vintage hankies on one of my favorite blogs, 52 Flea. As discussed in the original blog, many of us remember how our grandmas would make orginal doll clothes for our Barbie dolls. My grandmother Sophie liked to crochet dresses and matching hats and coats. As shown here, this lovely Hankie dress was made from a charming colorful hanky.
