This is the third lace pouch I’ve made for my mother’s old mobile. The two previous ones were crocheted and wore out pretty quickly. I’m hoping this tatted version will resist the wear and tear a little longer.
The pattern is made of two square motifs and a border of rings through which an elastic band is threaded. There’s a loop at the other end to attatch the lanyard.
I found this delightful tatting pattern on Pinterest. It’s been loaded by Ninetta Caruso and she tells us that it’s from a hundred year old collar passed down to her from her aunt! I strongly recommend her wonderful blog if you’re interested at all in tatting.
