Bridal Hankies

I read about this cool idea on one of the bridal sites where they used the cut off hem to make bridal hankies for the parents. My dress only had 5" taken off it, so that wouldn't work, so this weekend I made these using my mom's embroidery machine and software. They turned out really cool and last night I did a rolled hem around the edges. I think our parents will like them.

5"...hmmm that's enough to do a super small run around bag. Or hang onto it and use it as trim on a baby's christening gown someday...

Those hankies are awesome...but it reminds me that I lost a 100 year old heirloom when I got married. Mike put my hankie in his tux coat and we turned it in to the rental company. =( It sucked...especially since I carried it just for show.
