The Gathering on Saturday went well! We had so much fun. I will post more about it this week and share more pictures but today is Monday Made on my Take Peace Tasha Tudor group. I wanted to share this Valentine dolly that I made for the gals in my group, using vintage hankies.
I found the craft with instructions on Pinterest. It was floating around and I checked it out. I did pin it on my Pinterest board. For directions and the pattern go to www.vintageimagecraft.com/hankie-doll.html
I thought they would be so fun to make, so I started collecting vintage hankies. I did buy a few Valentine hankies as this was a Valentine party.
The blog gave me a print out for the two ladies, the heart and a back piece to hold up the hanky. I did adjust the heart as I thought the original pattern was too large. I added the paper heart dollies.
I used scrapbook papers and matched up the colors the best I could. The instructions will give you directions for ironing the hankies.
You glue the pieces together and slip the hanky top under the waist band to make finish off her dress.
I wanted them to hang, so I glued on little ribbons on the back under a little square tag to hide the ends of the ribbon.
I was very pleased with the finished product and the ladies really liked them. It was a fun project and it feels good to be crafting again.
