The Hanky Dress Lady: May 2012
A blog about Hanky Dresses, vintage hankies, upcycling vintage, and other creative projects by the original creator of the vintage Hanky Dress.
This is the first post to my blog and I am dedicating it heavenward to my Mother. “Love You Mom!” Above is a picture of one of my early hanky dresses, made way back in 2006. The design immediately made me think of my Mom, who was still alive at the time. It just looked like Mom! That’s the thing with vintage hankies…there is one to fit every personality and occasion. So I hope you will stop by often to see my ever changing parade of dresses made from vintage and sometimes antique hankies. I will show you how you can use them in your own home décor. I also plan to take you along on some of my vintage shopping adventures; as well as, share some of my hanky, sewing, and button knowledge with you. I wish all the mother’s out there a very happy and loving Mother’s Day!

This is a vintage hankie up-cycled. Using an origami paper technique, I created a vintage hankie dress. They are a fun decorative element. Using a vintage handkerchief, I pressed it into the shape of a dress. Then I lined it with a cotton fabric. The vintage hankie dress and the cotton "lining" were stitched together. I added a burgundy velvet ribbon on the waistline and hand-sewn vintage rhinestone button.The dress comes with a black metal hanger hand-sewn to the dress. This is a large dress because this was a larger vintage hankie. The group picture with other vintage hankie dresses gives you an idea of the size. THIS LISTING IS JUST FOR THE Pink & Rose DRESS ONLY. The length of the dress is about 12.5 inches. With the hanger it is about 14 inches in length. At it's widest, it is about 11.75 inches wide. Waist line is about 4.5 inches wide.

Isa Creative Musings: Hanky dress
This is so unlike me, but during the month of December I did not create any new projects. After we returned from our vacation it was time to catch up on everything then Christmas came...very quickly! I was too tired to craft(again, not like me because I am rarely that tired)! Usually, when that happens, I read a book or two. I enjoyed the two books I read over the holidays, The Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Claire and Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick. I also took two on-line courses which I absolutely loved. The first one was a 5 day online course by Christy Tomlinson along with other instructors. One of the instructors was, Margie Romney-Aslett's whose blog I love. While reading her blog, I learned she was teaching an e-course , Spark your Christmas: Taking these on-line courses is just what I need sometimes. There is always something new to learn . Best of all, I am inspired by these wonderfully creative souls. Spark your Christmas did more than spark new ideas in my head, it also inspired me to create my own version of the paper garland. I love doilies and watching Margie create a garland using paper doilies and crochet doilies was just fun. So, this past week, I have taken time to create a new project. One of my favorite paper lines is from My Mind's Eye, Lost and Found. Years ago, when I first started collecting vintage hankies I created an origami style dress using the vintage hankies. I sold most of them and then focused on the felted wool items I now create. However, this past year as I shopped at numerous estate sales in search of vintage linens, buttons and sewing notions, I would come across the vintage hankies. Recently, I started purchasing the vintage hankies thinking, maybe I should make those origami style dresses. Instead of folding paper, I ironed the hankies to create this: I also created some paper dresses using my favorite papers from My Minds Eye: Margie's paper garland inspired me to create a paper garland using the same paper line so it could also become the clothesline for my paper dresses: I love working with felted wool...but, I also love working with paper. I am in process of creating paper garlands and coordinating paper dresses from all the different Lost and Found paper lines by My Minds Eye. I just finished many hankie dresses using lace trimmed embroidered white hankies embellished with vintage buttons: Christy Tomlinson's e-course also introduced me to another mix media artist...Jeanne Oliver..more on that tomorrow.

One of the only things I took from my Great Aunt Betty's apartment after she died were some of her vintage handkerchiefs. She had stacks of them because she grew up in a time when people actually used handkerchiefs and more than anything else in her home these remind me of her. My own tastes lean modern so for now I'm just going to hold onto them (perhaps I'll try actually using them), but if you, too, have a similar collection and favor a vintage vibe in your home, here are some ideas for how to incorporate them into your decor.

Favorite Vintage Finds of the Week- December 31st - My So Called Crafty Life
Happy New Year 1953! This vintage hankie / handkerchief was made to commemorate New Year's Eve almost 50 years ago. The hankie is definitely from the atomic age! So cute! Very good condition: one tiny hole near the edge, and two small red marks by the angel's bow. I adore vintage linens, but my collection has gotten too large, my husband is complaining, decided to share some of them with you. Enjoy!
