[embroidery] Three new hankies

Dollar's handmade Christmas gifts were a little late but the did get finished:

New embroidered hankies for Dollar. The one with thistles is an homage to Braveheart.

Iron-on patterns from Sublime Stitching. The one with thistles I made as an homage to the handkerchief that William Wallace keeps with him his entire life in the movie Braveheart.

The hankies themselves are organic, cotton and a heavier fabric than most others I've seen but they're still too delicate. I'm looking for rugged, white cotton handkerchiefs. If anyone has a good source, please let me know.

This website has some flannel and cotton handkerchiefs. Maybe you could email them to see if they have the heavyweight cotton you are looking for:

Or look the product up on and check out the reviews.

Note: I have nothing to do with this company and I have never
purchased handkerchiefs for myself.

I just thought I would do a good deed today by looking online for you.

Good Luck!

Ha ha! Those are the ones I ordered! They're very nice, soft. I'm still looking for a bit more rugged- almost like a light canvas.
