... I think it looks like something vintage .... and, it does have a bit of actual vintage on it...the tatted edge of a hankie that I bought at the local doll/bear show a month or so ago. A woman had several silk hankies ..for 25 cents and 50 cents! I snapped up most of them.
Of course, one does hate to cut into them....but, like Karen says ... why put them in a drawer and forget about them? Use them on something else .. something that will be seen often.
What about a pin cushion? Perfect.
The colour on the piece of fabric is flower pounding... using flowers from my garden. I did it ages ago ...and stuck in in a bag with other fabrics... hahahahah...never to be seen again either really...... looks a bit like watercolour doesn't it?
Pssst... don't tell Karen I showed it publicly without damp stretching it...yikes!! It looks all wrinkly!
Almost as bad as showing your underwear in public....well, ...if you are over 30 that is.
I use my little pin cushions all the time .. some sit behind glass in a curio ... some have been sent away.... they get used and they definitely get looked at. No hankies in hidden places in drawers around here.
