Lace Edged Hankie
Designed by Julie A. Bolduc
This is the first attempt I have made to put an edging on a hankie. I have a few hankies that were given to me with crocheted edgings on them and I love the way they look so I decided to create a look of my own. In the future I plan to scan and post the pictures of the hankies I have and try to write the patterns that was used for them but they are not my patterns and I have no idea where the patterns came from.
