Paisley Scarf Edging

Spotted on Etsy

Red Grey Paisley Silk Tatting Lace Long Scarf

Here is the link to this Etsy item: Red Grey Paisley

Take note of this graceful way to "unique-ify" a silk accessory.

Hmmm, I have a shoebox full of long-neglected accessory scarves a round here somewhere...

Don't the colors of the lace match the scarf perfectly?


My ability to re-size photos (PhotoShop) is still on the fritz. (*grumble*) But I am still tatting. (Wishing I could show you...)

Remember this? Dipping a Toe in the Design Pool

Here is a slightly out-of focus shot from my cell phone. It shows my attempts to tat a fleur de lis edging. Right now it looks more like a weird light bulb filament, but once I get the shape worked out to my satisfaction I will offer up the pattern for free.

Here is a second cell phone snapshot.

Gina, you have been waiting since June of 2009 for this project to bear fruit. Hope I haven't kept you waiting too long! I am still toying with ideas. Hopefully soon it will be finished. Soon!

Another idea! Look forward to you working some tatting around those long forgotten scarves!

Very pretty, and reasonably priced... I'd be sorely tempted if it were in blue!

Miranda said...

The design and colors you've chosen go perfectly with the scarf!

Hello IsDihara, Is it your birthday? Happy Birthday! I love your edging design. It looks dainty and very pretty, perfect for a lady's hanky.

Gina said...

hmmmmm....did that have to do with that lovely heart you tatted that I once asked about, with the fleur de lis? Gosh...I've slept a night or two since then! LOL!

Lovely scarf. That edging pattern goes well with the paisleys.
