Papa's Kerchief

Papa's Kerchief
Originally uploaded by hmsohly
Papa's birthday is this Sunday. We are happy to have him visiting for the week. The boy enjoyed writing Papa's name so I could embroider it on a handkerchief for a gift. We have other goodies, for Papa, but I think he will like this the best. Maybe I should save the blanket I'm making him for Christmas. The baby girl will sing "Happy to you" in her sweet 20-month-old voice and I bet we will get a good smile out of that old, German farmer. Happy Birthday, Pop!

If you'd like to make one, just do simple thin hem on the edges of a 12 or 13" piece of soft cotton. Get your child to write the name you need, trace with a window and stitch away. Simple and sweet.
