Mary Fitch Hankerchief Case

Here is my version of what is pictured on page 12 of the 1915 book that I mentioned in the previous post. I'm not very good at "winging it" without a pattern, so I am quite pleased with myself on this one.

GOOD JOB!!!! So delicate embroidery. Really good for "wingin' it". And the tatting is nice and simple. Don't need any fancy stitches or difficult techniques to make a piece look excellent. :)

What a lovely piece! My first thought was it would be a very feminine holder for mini pads and the like if one doesn't use real handkerchiefs!

I could also see it as an elegant outside pocket tacked or snapped to the waistband of a skirt.

I so need to learn to tat...
