A gorgeous flower girl handkerchief  made from cotton and  Nottingham lace.
This hankie has a lovely keepsake poem machine embroidered for a flower girl. You can personalise this flower girl handkerchief  with names and wedding date. If you want to keep the vintage look, chose a pale colour for the embroidery, or dusty blue (as in this photo) for your flower girls future Something Old, Something Blue.

Many of today’s lace handkerchiefs are made using nylon lace, but here at Extra Special Touch, we like  the more traditional cotton lace hankies. The Nottingham lace we use is made in the last remaining factory of it’s type in the UK, on vintage lace looms to original Victorian patterns, with Egyptian cotton. The factory is only a few miles away from our Nottingham studio, and we have been lucky enough to have a tour of the Cluny Lace factory to see the lace being made.

● Choice of embroidery colours.
● Choose your embroidery colour, or maybe dusty blue, as your “Something Old, Something Blue”?

You’ve always been here for me, each day throughout my life,
And I would like to thank you Mum, as I become a wife,

Thank you Mum, I love you, from the bottom of my heart!

I would just like to leave a special thank you for such a beautiful handkerchief I received today,
It was a special gift which I will give to my goddaughter on her christening day in April.
The embroidered poem was beautifully done.
Many Thanks
