tatting an edge

24" tatted edge.   I used Lizbeth size 20 - off white color.

I tatted this edge for a girlfriend.   She saw a stitched model, with tatted trim at House of Stitches.   I visited the LNS & realized, I actually had the needlework pattern in my 'stash'.   So, went on a hunt thru my tatting books, and found the pattern.   It was an edge with tatted rings, rings, rings, and rings.   I tatted a sample [or three] before I started the edge.   Tension pretty good thru the project!  


 (Above) this is the project with tatting ... (below) book where I found the pattern.   Both can be purchased in stores and on-line.   They are not out of print.

It is so pretty, I may need to stitch the project and tat another edge!!!

While sorting thru my stash, I came across a couple handkerchief packages - they are screaming for a tatted edge.   Perhaps my next adventure...

Your edging looks fabulous! I suppose I should dust off Rebecca Jones and have another look. ;-)
