I got a Bee in my Bonnet and decided I needed some pretty hankies. I had a bit of muslin hanging around, so I cut it into eight 9.5” squares. I did a rolled hem on some of them following the Purl Bee tutorial:
And then I went to town on the edges with various colors of crochet cotton that I had hanging around. I made up most of the edges. I discovered that you don’t really need to hem a hankie if you’re going to crochet over the edge, so that saves a lot of time. The dark green one has blanket stitching over the hem, with a simple crocheted edge attached to the blanket stich, but I don’t really like the way it looks.
I also used this one (no photo yet):
And I think I’ll use one of these too:
Just found pdfclassicbooks.com and spent $2 on a book of 100 lace edgings, most crocheted but a few to knit:
