Hand-embroidery on a Handkerchief

One of my best friends from school gets married today – congratulations Rhiannon and Simon!

Weddings always give me the opportunity to get crafty and this time around, Rhiannon asked me to embroider a very special message onto a handkerchief to give to her Dad on the big day. I used ordinary navy cotton doubled up for the stitching, which matches the bridesmaids. This was incredibly fiddly to do but I didn’t want the stitching to be too big and I wanted it to be obviously hand stitched. I have displayed the handkerchief in an old Radley box that once housed my credit card wallet. I do love to recycle after all!
