Just in time for wedding season, Janome Artisan Milinda Stephenson has created this lovely lace handkerchief corner. In one hooping, you can attach the lace to an 11 1/2" square of cotton or linen and then finish the project using the rolled hem on your serger or by attaching heirloom lace using a small zig-zag stitch on your sewing machine. 

Janome Supplies Required
  • 11 1/2" square of cotton or linen for the handkerchief (Note: You may finish the edges before the embroidery or attach the lace edging to the handkerchief after.)
  • Cotton or embroidery thread, being certain the top and bottom threads are the same
  • Wash away stabilizer (Milinda used two layers of Pellon sol-u-film.)
