Instead of stashing these cherished family items away never to be seen or loved again, repurpose them.

Various squares of fabric embellished with initials perhaps for the gents or lace for the ladies were placed in pockets or purses for practical hygiene purposes.
I see that some of your hankies have a stitiched,scalloped edge. I have some like this as well.
