I woke up thinking about making the potholder for Wendy and making a Vintage Hankie Scarf. So I knew I wouldn’t get to work on my quilt today, but would get to two things that I wanted to make.
Marsha asked me a while ago if I could make her a Vintage Hankie Scarf. It was the new batch of hankies that Fran sent me that got me to do it. I was able to make two scarves so once Marsha chooses the one she likes, I’ll put the other one up for sale.
Sometimes I wonder how many Hankie scarves I’ve made.
I still have one from when I first started making them in 2013. A year after that I did a Kickstarter focused on Vintage Hankies and thanks to so many of you, raised enough money to buy my Viking Sewing Machine. A couple of years ago I made a dress using hankies as a skirt sewn to a tanktop.
So we have a history, me and vintage hankies.
While going through my stash today I found a couple with some great embroideries on them that I put aside to make into potholders. And someday I’ll figure out how to use the box of white hankies I have stored under my worktable.

Maria, I’m so glad you were able to use the hankies to create your beautiful scarves! 🙂
Have never heard of hankie scarves! I have a lot of vintage hankies. Recently embroidered some onto a scalloped baby blanket for my terminally ill sister. She loved it. Calls it her hankie blankie. Not sure I would wear the scarves. Have you used them on quilts? Looking for some ideas for using them
I love Hankie Blankie, that’s a very loving what to use them. I used them in one quilt, but never made a whole quilt from them Lois. Although I’ve seen pictures of that were made by other people.
I love your hanky scarves! What a lovely idea. I have been collecting them for years for a quilt someday.
Oh nice Rilla. Good luck with your quilt. When you make it, I’d love to see a picture of it. You must have some wonderful hankies!
