Handkerchief Pocket

It's amazing how finishing a piece changes it from a flimsy bit of embroidered fabric, into something of substance.

The white work embroidery has now had a front attached and been lined.  I also attached some interfacing on the flap to protect the stitching and to make it more stable.
The result, is a pocket that can be used. 

I shall now give it a gentle wash to take out the transfer lines, and shall look forward to trying this technique again.

How lovely is that! It looks just like something you would find in an antique linens shop. (That is a compliment, by the way)
