I love vintage – whether it be linens, kitchen tools, fabric, graphic prints, clothing, ect. There is something so comforting to me about things that have been around for awhile and things that have a history.
Several weeks back my family and I went to a local farmer’s market and stopped at a favorite antique store in the area on our way back. I picked up quite a few vintage hankies as well as some vintage pillowcases. I knew I wanted to turn the pillowcases into dresses, but wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with the hankies.
My good friend, college roommate, and Savannah’s Godmother, Lara, just had her birthday this past week and I wanted to make a special gift for a VERY special friend. You know the saying, “Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other’s gold?” Well Lara is one of my “old”, long-time friends and she is just that – pure gold. She is one of the few people in life that I can be 100% myself and never feel like there is any judgement – I feel as comfortable around her as I do my immediate family. She is very special to me and is without a doubt, what I like to call a “Forever Friend”.
So this is what I came up with for Lara’s birthday – the Vintage Hanky Tote. Give it a try – make one for yourself or give this as a gift to that special forever friend in your life.
