So much can be done with vintage handkerchiefs. If your shower guests are particularly skilled with a needle and thread, or a member of your crafting group is getting hitched, the following shower idea might be for you. I read recently about how to keep guests entertained while the bride-to-be opens gifts at her bridal shower. The suggestion was to have guests bring an embroidered square, vintage handkerchiefs, or scraps of fabrics to the party and as they watch, the guests sew the squares together to make a quilt or pillow that the bride can keep for years to come.
I've just listed several beautiful, vintage handkerchiefs on my online store - there are many monograms and Valentine hankies.
