I finished sewing together my first four Painted Vintage Hankie Scarves today. All four are already spoken for. But I will be making more. I have lots of hankies that I’ve already painted and plenty more that I can paint. (which I love doing).
When I painted the hankies I wasn’t thinking about how they would work together in a scarf. Choosing which painted hankies should go together is like curating an exhibit. Something I haven’t done in a long time.
Of course, the scarves look different flat on my studio floor than they do draped around someone’s shoulders. So below is a photo of one of the scarves hanging.
After making all different kinds of Vintage Hankie Scarves for so many years I am aware that the middle hankie (or hankies) doesn’t get the same visibility as the ones on the ends. I do plan for that when I’m making them.
