another find

children's hanky

It's not so much that this vintage children's hanky is in perfect shape—it isn't. The fabric is thin and almost worn through in a couple of places near the edge. But the colors are still bright and the motifs are super cute so I had to buy it. And it was only $3.

The words in the center read: On Monday I wash my little dolly's clothes—How she gets them so dirty—Goodness knows!

There are tiny washboards and boxes of soap flakes and little blue soap bubbles scattered around. And the little girl with her braid and blue bow is super cute!

I'm thinking of turning this design into an embroidery pattern! Or perhaps a fabric design.

As I was looking at the hankie, I thought the same thing...it needs to be an embroidery pattern!! Too cute!

Awww...sweet. It would look neat as an embroidery design or reproduced fabric. I wish they had retro things with graphics like this instead everything being SpongeBob, or Hannah montana! Ugh.
