There has been a lot of sniffling and nose blowing around our house the past week. Although we just found a great deal on toilet paper, I decided to make more homemade hankies for my husband. It’s easier on our pocketbook, and, more importantly, on the Earth.
So I got to cutting up an old pair of his flannel pj pants that had a big rip in them. I’ve made him a handful of hankies from these before, but as is always the case with reusable cloth items, I need more than I think I do.
So I surged up a dozen or more handkerchiefs, using up the remaining pj pants fabric. I tied the knots at the corners, snipped my thread, and now all that remains is for them to be washed and dried. By the time my husband gets home from work he’ll have a new collection of handkerchiefs.
