Homemade handkerchiefs

I don't know why, but I've been really keen to make these synchronised swimmer handkerchiefs. They're such a silly thing to make, but I really like them!
According to Google, women's handkerchiefs are 8x8", and men's 12x12". I figured out from half a metre of fabric I could get ten handkerchiefs if I had nine synchronised swimmers on each. The un-hemmed size was 9 1/2" x 10 1/4". 
I used different coloured thread to hem the hankies: yellow, purple, green, pink, and blue. Picking highlights from the material.
I plan to put some of them in with my friend's present. And keep the others for myself.
