Thank you for your interest in my hand embroidered items. Common Thread Cottage offers original items and vintage hankie items for a one-of-a-kind heirloom gift.
The ORIGINAL items in my shop are not "embroidery blanks", I make each one the old fashioned way from handkerchief linen or cotton batiste and soft cotton lace or edging using heirloom sewing techniques. I then add hand embroidered embellishments, leaving room for an initial and/or date which will be added after purchase. Personalized hankies make special gifts for mother-of-the-bride/groom, graduation, infant arrival, any occasion that brings a tear to the eye.

Each VINTAGE hankie is a work of art. I love looking at the different designs, the tiny stitches, the delicate fabric, lace and tatting.....I even love ironing them! The hankies that are in perfect condition may be made into a hanky-bonnet, or offered as-is. I will happily personalize your item with hand embroidery if you desire.
I usually have hankies in stock that haven't made it into the shop yet, so feel free to contact me if you don't see what you're looking for.

SIZING INFO for Hanky Bonnets:
The size of the finished Hanky Bonnet depends on the size of the Hanky used.
* Two of the styles available have gathers in the back of the bonnet making it slightly adjustable and allowing for some growth.
* The tailored style is fixed in the back, giving little to no growing room.
* Measure the circumference of baby's head using a tape measure. If you don't have a tape measure, use a length of ribbon or string, marking where the ends meet and then measure the distance between the marks.

Hanky Bonnets come with acid-free, unbuffered tissue paper and storage instructions.

Shipping
Please allow 3-5 days after purchase to allow me time to hand stitch your item. If no personalization is needed, I will ship the next day. Your hankie will come beautifully packaged and ready for gift giving. Bonnets come ready to wear, pressed and lightly starched, in a crush resistant 6x6x6 box.
All items will be shipped USPS, first class mail with delivery confirmation. If you need upgraded shipping, insurance, or via another carrier, just let me know. Buyer will pay for upgraded shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with you're order! If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, return it to me in its original condition within 14 days for a full refund. The buyer is responsible for return shipping.
Custom and monogrammed orders are not returnable, however I will make every effort to communicate with you using sketches, photos,and color samples during the planning of your custom item. I will send a photo of your completed custom order for your final approval before shipping.
Additional policies and FAQs
I welcome Alchemy and custom orders, however they are not refundable. Embroidery can be customized with wedding or school colors. Symbols can be incorporated into the embroidery design to commemorate a special occasion. Some I have used recently: heart, cross, graduation cap and tassel, mascot name, celtic knot. Just let me know what you need.

Keep in mind the hankies offered are already stitched, minus an initial and date. Custom orders will take longer to prepare. Allow up to 7 days before a custom item will be shipped.
