Crafty Christmas – Tea & Kake’s Monogrammed Hankies

January 2, 2011 at 2:34 pm Leave a comment

They didn’t know it, but Tommy and Kristin were begging for monogrammed handkerchiefs.

Mens hankies are meant to be around 12 inches square, womens around 9 inches. I cut out two squares for each hankie.Before sewing the sides together: I found a font I liked, flipped it horizontally before printing it off, traced the printed letters on tissue paper with an embroidery transfer pencil, ironed that on to one side (square) of each hankie. With a handy embroidery hoop and floss, I embroidered the T on the bigger hankie and the K on the smaller.

Sewing them together:

Putting the right sides of a hankie together, I sewed it on my machine, leaving a gap of a couple inches to turn it right side out. I ironed the hankie, turning the gap edges in and pressing them so that the hankie was a perfect square. Then a simple top stitch on the machine helps it keep its shape and closes the gap.
