Handy Hankies Contest!

We're full swing into National Craft Month, and we've got another fun and easy contest for you! We're announcing it a little early so you all have some time to shop over the weekend!

Back in the day, everyone carried a handkerchief. Some were pretty, some were plain, and some were so fancy we could never imagine anyone actually wanting to use them. Now it seems that every thrift store and antique store has a huge stack of them for sale, and they're a bargain (as long as you stay away from those collectible ones)!

We'd love for you to find some vintage handkerchiefs and make something cute and adorable with them. You'll have until Tuesday, March 27th to find some hankies, whip something up, and get us a picture. We'll choose our favorite, and send them one of these:
Our awesome Kangaroo Kabinets rolling tote! Yippee!

Here are the rules:

1. Make something out of a hankie (or two)

2. This must be a project made especially for this contest.

3. Take a picture of it, and email it to by   Tuesday, March 27th at 3 pm Eastern time.

4. The entries will be posted in a slideshow on the Arrow blog.

5. The projects will be voted on by Arrow staff, and the project with the most votes wins!

Put those creative thinking caps on everyone, we're sure you'll all come up with great projects!


  1. Too cool! I have lots of vintage hankies I have been wanting to do something with. Now to figure out what and git ;er done! :)

  2. I got mine done and submitted,although I didn't have any hankies handy and so I went on a thrift store scavenger hunt! Sew much fun.

  3. Great contest but many of us already own the rolling tote.

  4. well I don't have a tote. would really really like one. :).
    Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

  5. My tote broke and a new one would be great. I have made hankie projects for several years. I submitted mine. Thanks for a great idea
