Here's my latest tatted edging added to a vintage handkerchief. The handkerchief appears to be nylon fabric. It still has a price tag attached with "The Bon Ton York, PA" printed on it. The original price is listed at 50 cents marked down to 25 cents. The thread is size 80 DMC tatting thread in color #917, a burgundy that matches the hemmed edge of the handkerchief.
The pattern is "Edging 11" from " Embellishing with Edgings, edited by Barbara Foster (pgs.20-1).
