The Hanky Fairy aka Garden Gnome suggested I give away some of those printed hankies to people who will actually do something with them so I decided this week I would give away a hanky a day. I have six hankies so there will be a new giveaway for six days.
So here's how it works: I will post a new hanky each day and if you are interested, just leave a comment. You can comment on any hanky you're interested in and overseas commenters are welcome. These are pretty easy to mail. I'll use the random number generator to pick a number though I won't be bothering with screen snapshots of the result. It just takes more time than I'm willing to put into it. Make sure I have a way to contact you. I'll update the previous day's entry with the winner's name. I will probably wait until the end and send them all out at once.
All the hankies are freshly laundered, lightly starched and pressed. They are different sizes but I forgot to measure them before I packaged them. Yep, they are packaged and ready to go! Two are embroidered rather than printed on and one is neither printed nor embroidered and is smaller than the others.
This hanky is slightly larger than the others and has a single rose embroidered on it. It has a rolled edge hem. I have two different quilt projects in mind that use hankies. One is called the Saucy Senorita and uses the hanky for her skirt. The other one is a butterfly quilt and the wings are made from the hanky. Not all hankies are suitable for these projects, like this one. The senorita's skirt really needs an overall pattern or even with something on a single point, it should be smaller and in proportion to the rest of the block. I don't see a way to use this one in butterfly wings either.
