I have decorated a lot of towels using a variety of fabrics but I have never had a crochet edge so I am going to give it a try.
The pattern was bought for 25c from a thrift shop in Winter Park Florida when I was on my holiday.
Another amazing pattern for Edgings bought for 25c at the Winter Park thrift shop. Again another pattern that is a delight to browse through, so many choices!
I have some little visitors this week that I really want to enjoy so not a project for this week as I need to concentrate on the pattern. They are both written using USA terms so I need to convert them before I start to save the confusion.
I was thrilled with my finds to add to my collection but it is even better when I actually use the pattern. I often wonder how many other people have used it before me, if only patterns could talk...now that really would make a brilliant blog post.
Really nice to see what was made back then. They must had very good eyes to see those tiny pattern...and patience too !ReplyDelete
Have a nice week !
Such intricate details using the fine thread. I find it interesting to see what people crocheted then and what people crochet now. How times have changed.ReplyDelete
Great finds! I love books like that. I have many. There are so many pretty crochet edgings. I love making them too. They're quick and so much fun to crochet.ReplyDelete
What great finds - I just love all those pretty lace edgings at the moment too and I'm adding lace to hems on just about everything I make at the moment! Would love to try crocheting edges for towels too. Looking forward to seeing your makes. Hope you're enjoying your week. XxReplyDelete
