edging

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.

Many vintage tablecloths or pillowcases aren’t usable because the fabric has holes and stains. In most cases the lace edging that was crocheted directly into the hem will be in perfect condition.

 

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.
