Making a Cushion from Vintage Hankerchiefs

How do you fancy making a cushion from vintage hankerchiefs?  You Do!  Well just check this wonderful excerpt from an old 1950’s Woman and Home Magazine!  Isn’t it just delightful!  I have a load of hankerchiefs that I have been saving for a project and it looks like this could be what I was saving them for!

These would look fabulous in my Summerhouse, placed on the Chaise Lounge…Perfect!

What room in the house will you be making them for?

I have resized this picture to hopefully a big enough file to be able to read! (just click on it!)….It is a little faded though, sorry about that, its the age of the piece not my photography! (well thats my excuse anyway!)….Get Crafty and Enjoy!
