Hankie Satchets featured in “Country Living” magazine

Hankie Project featured in Country Living

Hankie Project featured in Country Living

Featured in the May 2010 issue of Country Living Magazine’s “idea notebook” section are three great projects inspired by Amy Barickman’s Hankie Style book. Amy is the founder of both Indygo Junction and The Vintage Workshop. The instructions and templates for all three projects: Table Runner, Tank Top, and Sachet are all available through the magazine, but we are sharing one project here with you now.

The Vintage Workshop offers beautiful vintage hankie images you can print onto fabric yourself so you don’t have to “use” your vintage versions.  Click here to browse all of our hankie images.  See below for a few samples.  Click here for printable fabrics.

Indygo Junction, our sister company, also offers sets of reproduction hankies plus patterns that use hankies. Click here to browse these hankie sets and other products that feature hankies

To create the sachets shown above follow these simple steps:

To make a sachet, cut a four-inch square from a hankie. With the pattern side up, fold three corners toward the square’s center. Hand-stitch the sides together. Turn the sachet inside out, press, and sew a decorative button atop the flap. Fill the pouch with dried lavender, then secure the flap with some hidden hand-sewn stitches.

Until next time…
