huge hankies from Cath Kidston, most were quite boring.
My second problem was the cost. I started searching through the high street shops, and generally a single hankie was about £8 or a set of five plain ones sold for £10. I didn't really want spend ten quid just to try something new. The lovely @VintagePleasure (who also writes Vintage Pleasure) suggested trying eBay and found this pack of six floral handkerchiefs in Scotland for just £1.75!
They looked perfect and at just £1.75 they were ideal for a trial run. Oddly enough the pack came with two blue hankies, three purple, and just the one peach - which was slightly disappointing as the purple was my least favourite colour.
Not quite the success I was hoping for, I've decided to add these pretty hankies to my fabric stash for a future project and to keep looking for a 100% cotton hankie which will hopefully be more practical!
