Sophia's Hankie

Sophia's hankie- this was my Mother's hankie. It was handmade for her in the 1940's by a special friend named Elsie. The delicate embroidery work on batiste fabric was done under a magnifying glass in the palest shade of blue. The open work is amazing for how tiny it is. The little medallion has layers and layers of embroidery.

My Mother gave this to me on my wedding day. I had it attached to my bouquet. I hope someday, I have a grand-daughter and maybe she will carry it on her wedding day.
