Worktable Wednesday -- A Bird in the Hand

This week's Worktable Wednesday is brought to you by Jenny of A Bird in the Hand.

Lately, I have been incorporating vintage handkerchiefs in my pieces.  Although I typically use fabric, this is the first time I have used handkerchiefs.  I find them at thrift stores and then incorporate them into a range of pieces.  Here, I have both a bird and a ring made from one handkerchief.  It was a fun challenge to use the handkerchief in just the right way to get the right pattern that I wanted on the bird (the white belly seemed necessary).  The ring was made using a few leftover scraps.

I have a couple vintage hankies that I want to use in a sewing project. Love how Jenny incorporated hers into ornaments and jewelry. Now that's unique!
