edging

Originally designed by Mabel Levin in 1926, the easy two-row edging adds bling to this set of two simple borders. Along with the matching insertion, they are suitable for many purposes, and may be used separately or in combination.

With six variations on a gorgeous chrysanthemum—scarf end, tablecloth corner, napkin corner, wide border (with corner turn), square, and insertion—you can accessorize any room in your house.

For Good Friday and the Easter season, this scalloped altar cloth edging has the acronym INRI, or “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews”, which was an inscription put on the cross.

Roses, butterflies and winding leaves decorate this summery filet crochet lace edging. Designed in 1927 by Olive F. Ashcroft, it can be used as a border for a tablecloth or a dresser scarf. Make the narrow leaf border as long as you need, or omit it for a faster project.

 

Here’s another simple way to attach edging to fabric without working dirctly onto the fabric, this time for more delicate fabrics like those used for garments and handkerchiefs.
