As a kid, I loved going through my mom’s closet and exploring all the cool clothing pieces she kept from her parents and her days as a dancer.
Vintage clothing and accessories like this beautiful old travel trunk have a magical air about them that makes them feel so glamorous and opulent.
Self-taught sewer Susan Owensknows the power of pretty vintage pieces, which is why she has been saving her two grandmas’ old handkerchiefs for years.
But after her first great-niece was born, she decided to take a few of the beautiful hankies and make a soft quilt for the new baby.
Though she had never quilted before, Owens got a lot of help from the internet and made sure every detailwas filled with love and meaning.
Check below to see how she turned the hankies into a beautiful baby quilt..
