If you have a length of crocheted lace edging or insertion that’s too long for your project, you can cut it safely using the following method to prevent raveling at the cut edge.

 

Any attractive wide insertion in filet crochet may be combined with ribbon of the same width to make a very pretty door panel or curtain. Make the outside strips the longest, and the center strip the shortest, with the length of the strips gradually decreasing.

 

When crocheting lace on hemmed edges of fabric, like pillow-slips or petticoats, try sewing rick rack on the underside of the hem, letting the points extend below the hem just far enough to catch your hook in, instead of working directly in the fabric.
