edging

 

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.

A Greek Key and natural scallops enhance the morning glories in this wide lace edge, originally designed by M. Pintner in 1927. The scallops are made as you go with easy increases and decreases, with no need for an additional edge.

This design is very attractive and versatile. In fine thread, the lace and insertion will be a very pretty trim for skirts, slips or other similar garments, and a yoke is easily arranged to match. Heavier thread makes a handsome stripe, with lace border, for a bedspread.

This pretty Rose Insertion works well as a corner as shown, and includes a pointed Rose Bud Lace Edging to match. Originally designed by Emma Boardman in 1920, it’s suitable for many purposes, and the lace edging and insertion may be used separately or in combination.

Originally designed by Blanche Kendall-Job in 1927, Beverly Lace and Insertion is a very simple and attractive Art Deco design, with symbolic representations of flowers and leaves. It’s suitable for many purposes, and the lace edging and insertion may be used separately or in combination.
