What a wonderful way to get those beautiful vintage handkerchiefs out of the drawer. The illustrated instructions show you how to make a lovely fabric basket. All you need is the handkerchief, some pretty fabric for backing, heavyweight interfacing, thread, and your imagination.
The baskets make very special presents and are a great way to preserve memories.
