Tatting - 6 Edgings and a Collar


Crochet & Tatted Edgings, published by the Lily Mills Company of Shelby, North Carolina ("Manufacturers of Famous Lily Sewing Threads"). Two pages of instructions can be found on my Flickr account.

I can't find a date but the collar in particular (a pattern for which is included) looks late '40's. Whenever it was published, it cost ten cents.

This just shows how timeless tatting is. It's vintage, but just as easily, could be today!

They are lovely!
Thank you for sharing them! It reminds me I could probably drag out my shuttle and just pop it in my purse - it can be such a portable project - and beautiful as well!
