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.

“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,
I’m proud that you’re beside me, to watch my new life start,
Thank you Mum, I love you, from the bottom of my heart!”
