Making a Handkerchief:
There are many different ways to make a handkerchief, including using embroidery and lace trim. You can use a sewing machine to sew lace onto the edge of your handkerchief or embroider it with a design. Embroidery is especially popular for weddings and special occasions.
Choosing the Right Material for Your Handkerchief:
Handkerchiefs can be made from cotton, cotton-synthetic blend, synthetic fabric, silk, or linen. They are also available in a range of colors.
Embroidery is a great way to personalize your handkerchiefs, and is also easy to learn how to do on your own. Common stitches include satin stitch, seed stitch, backstitch for outlining and blanket stitch.
Lace Edging is a Popular Option for Decorative Handkerchiefs:
The most popular way to decorate your handkerchiefs is with lace. You can use different types of lace, including cotton laces that wash better than polyester ones. You can also add embroidery to your lace edging by using a small hoop and inexpensive embroidery floss.
Why You Should Carry a Hanky Instead of Tissues?
Disposable facial tissues, as opposed to handkerchiefs, are a lot less hygienic. When you wipe your nose with a tissue paper, the germs from your nose are transferred to the tissue and then to any other surfaces that you touch. This can cause a huge spread of bacteria and germs.
