Tatted Edging on Holiday Handkerchief

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • Vintage handkerchief and vintage Star brand tatting thread in red/green/white variegated
  • size 70.
