Original "No Ugly Crying" hankie, fitting handmade gift for your bridesmaids or mother. Often used as a fun way to propose to your bridesmaids.

My bestselling, original design as seen on Buzzfeed, in June 2014 Glamour Magazine, Parade Magazine, and numerous treasury and blog picks.

Block print, hand embroidered "No Ugly Crying" in the corner of a cotton hanky, made to order in your choice of thread color.

Customization Options:
*Hanky Style: 12” Scalloped Hem, 12” Straight Hem, or men’s traditional Satin Bordered

*Thread Color-to see color options, please go to my website: wrenbirdarts.com, under “Custom Ordering”, to view the color chart.

Seriously Handcrafted
My promise to you is a completely original and created with care handkerchief. Each and every design in my shop is original and hand lettered or hand sketched. Once you place your order, I outline the design directly onto the hanky, then I hand embroider (no machines!) using 100% cotton thread. That’s just the beginning. Once the embroidery is complete, I hand wash the hanky with unscented soap, dry, label, and press each hanky. After that, I double check, and wrap your order in simple, recyclable, cute packaging!

What's so special about hand embroidery?
Aside from the obvious (hand stitched), there is much to love about hand embroidery. The thread is thicker than machine embroidery thread, so the stitching stands out from the fabric. You can feel the stitching, which allows for more depth to the image. Photography doesn't do it justice at all. Each piece really is a little work of art. So, yes, hand embroidery all the way!

How do I wash my hand embroidered hankie?
While hand washing is preferred, you can also machine wash on the delicate cycle, and lay flat to dry. Hankies become softer with each wash, and will probably always need to be ironed if you prefer wrinkle free.
