Hanky Edging #7 - Completed
This lovely monogrammed handkerchief was given to me by Fox of Tat-ology. I started the hanky edging with this post and progressed to this post. Did I undo the first 6 inches of the edging? No, I did not. It did not look too bad after I blocked and ironed it. There is some crumpling but that's fine, easier than undoing 6 inches and tatting it again.
What was tatting 3 edgings simultaneously like? Well I got pretty distracted with side projects until I could not remember the pattern for each edging or what thread I used. If I had to do it again, I would tat one edging with many other small motifs at the side. I think perhaps that would be done much earlier. This took me about 2 months but I am happy with the results. Here is a photo of all three and I have Gina, Fox and Diana to thank for.
