Handkerchief I made using a decorative stitch on my machine. I’m a geologist, so I need something pretty to cover my head out in the field. I just cut a square of the cotton, folded the hem (3/8 inch) and placed the needle so that underside of the decorative stitch was centered over the raw edge (thus finishing the raw edge). Very fun and easy; I’ll probably make another one soon.
Cotton remnant, pretty-colored thread
