Homemade printed handkerchief

Grandpa will love a hand-stamped printed handkerchief from his favourite grandchild to keep in his pocket.


Here’s how to make your own homemade printed handkerchief:

1. To create your own stripe pattern, wrap twine tightly around a wood block and tape the ends to the back.

2. Apply fabric paint to the block with a sponge. (Most fabric-paint brands should be permanent and washer-safe.)

3. Stamp pattern of your choice onto a plain handkerchief.
