Before the invention of disposable tissues, most people carried handkerchiefs in their pockets or purses.

These small cloth squares were used to wipe up spills, clean children's faces, and wipe noses.

True collectors have hankies that stretch much farther back in time, for these keepsakes were special to someone, and were thus saved, and survived for us to savor.

Handkerchiefs have been with us in the small moments – dabbing a baby’s chin, wrapping a child’s cut finger, catching a tear while watching for the umpteenth time, and the major moments – a bride’s tears of joy, a widow’s deep despair, a marine tucking his wife’s perfumed hankie over his heart.

This craft provides a backing for the handkerchief, which can be helpful if the piece is somewhat fragile.
