What materials did you use? Vintage handkerchief and vintage Star brand tatting thread in red/green/white variegated, size 70.

What are you most proud of? Like the way the colors of the thread matched the colors on the fabric.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're working with a handkerchief that does not have straight edges, try to find an edging that is not too straight. Otherwise, you may have problems getting the edging to fit well and lie flat.

Congrats on getting the edging to follow the curves. Beautiful work!

Thanks for the compliment, Marilee. Coming from such a wonderful tatter as you are means a lot to me!
