Hankie Tankie

Ariana from Hankie Tankie is obsessed with vintage fabrics and everything French. These obsessions are reflected in her chic one-of-a-kind tank tops adorned with vintage fabrics, lace, and doilies.

Once upon a time, my Mom mailed me a package of vintage hankies with a note that said, 'Do something with these!' I had been experimenting with tank top designs, and voila! Hankie Tankie was born...says Ariana.

Great news! All the items at Hanke Tankie are currently on sale - tank tops, scarves and tote bags! Check out the handmade chicness on sale at:


I'm hosting that giveaway here next week that I hinted about 3 weeks ago. Just to refresh your memories - the sponsor is a costume jewellery designer whose designs have been featured in many magazines, and are a part of the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris.

See you next week! Have a happy weekend all!
