Update #2: If the name has been removed, the hanky has been packaged for mailing. Thanks for such a wonderful response!
Update: I'm sorry I wasn't clear. Would you mind choosing just one hanky for now so that more people can have an opportunity to try tatting hanky edgings? Thanks!
Here's the scoop, tatting friends... I've gone a tad crazy bidding on vintage hankies on eBay, and I've gotten some tremendous deals. However, there's no way I'll have time to tat edgings for all of these hankies!
Would you like to take part in a little hanky madness? Choose one of the hankies below, post your choice in the comments so that everyone will know which ones are taken (I'll try to keep up with marking off the ones that are spoken for), send me your mailing address, and I'll get one of these little beauties out to you ASAP! There are absolutely no strings attached. Believe me, I've kept plenty that I'm not quite ready to give up, and I still have far too many on hand!
I'm not good at coming up with names, but I'll try to name the hankies in groups that will help both of us out. First come, first serve. Please note that some of these hankies already have some machine-made lace attached to them, so you might have to do a little snipping.
I hope you'll post pictures of what you do! Happy tatting!
Group B: All gone!
Group D: All gone!
Group E: All gone!
Let the hanky madness begin!
