Janome: Sewing a Modern Handmade Handkerchief

I’ve always been quite intrigued with handkerchiefs. I have a small collection of them and I’ve have enjoyed looking for them in antique shops.

There’s something so special about generations past, how they kept their handkerchiefs close to their hearts. I created a project with Janome for a modern take on the traditional handkerchief. I loved using light weight cotton garment fabrics for this project like voile or linen. Using a printed fabric was intriguing to me as it will hide stains that may come with using the handkerchief.

If you’ve never sewn with a rolled hem presser foot or have not used a machine to stitch initials, this will be a fun project for you!
