Shawl for Barbie

Barbie will soon be dressed in a lovely shawl embroidered with silk roses made from a handkerchief.  While looking for some fabric to make a shawl I found an old handkerchief that I had been given.  It is so old that the packaging was crumbling!  I thought that a corner of it would make a very pretty shawl.  I haven't made it up yet or taken pictures because I still working on the embroidery.  But I hope to finish it tomorrow.  I'm thinking of folding the shawl over and using the leftover fabric as a backing.  Then crocheting an edging to close up the edges of the shawl.
