Last minute Christmas gift - finished!

I monogrammed these brand new handkerchiefs for my dad on Christmas morning before going to my parents' house.  He uses hankies everyday, which he refers to as "snot rags." LOL.  He was happy to get some new ones, but then when I showed him that I had stitched his initials on them, he was really happy!
Merry Christmas, Dad!

The pattern for the monogrammed capital "D" is from a freebie alphabet from StitchAlley.com, and the "DF" and "DGF" initials are from a Leisure Arts booklet.

That's a thoughtful gift. My Grandpa used hankies. Haven't seen them on the shelves for YEARS.
