Handkerchief hemmed at the point of Paris and bordered of tatting

A random search on the internet, I find the “Paris point”. I didn't know this way of making a hem, but I was particularly interested for my handkerchiefs. I followed explanation of this blog.

It made me want to tat a new tissue.
The hem is finished now. I must say I like the result and this convinced me to abandon rolled hems I usually do.

With my very thin fabric of cotton, I pulled 4 threads and embroidered together 8 theads on each needle passageway.

 

I started a tatting edge: a classic edge in fact! The pattern has Tatting in lace by Mary Konior. She says it is a Victorian pattern also well known in the US.

    Une nouvelle et belle façon de faire les ourlets. A mettre de côté dans ma petite tête lol car il me reste juste 2 mois pour mon marché de noël !!!
    Bravo for this wonder
    kisses

    1. thank you Virginia. Mais par pitié, ne passe pas des heures à faire ce genre d’ourlet pour le brader sur un marché de Noël. Trop peu de gens savent apprécier ce genre de travail.

    1. Merci Céline. Sur un vêtement, ce serait un gros travail, mais qui promet d’être superbe! J’espère que tu nous montreras 🙂
