An anonymous commenter signed the name "mic" to their comment which follows:
i have a question and it might sound odd ... but how do you attach your tatting? i've been working on an edging for my god daughter's dress and i can't think of how to attach it. i was thinking sewing it down by hand but i'm not sure that would be the best choice ... i'd greatly appreciate any pointers you could give :)thank you
I'd rather answer the question in an email but since there is none, I'll answer on the blog and hope mic sees it.
I prefer to sew edgings on but some people tat them on. I use the edge of the folded over or hemmed fabric and use a sort of blind stitch like you do when you hand-hem something. I catch the tatting no less than every 1/4" if it's a chain edge, but otherwise, I like to catch the picots when the needle comes out of the fabric. You'll need to use the same color thread or invisible thread.
It depends on the depth of the edging as well as the design. If it's a very simple edging, you might pin it to the surface right at the edge and put a ribbon or cord or other decorative cord on top of the very edge, stitching both down at once. I really think hand-sewing is the better way to go though. Maybe if I saw a sample of the lace I could give better suggestions.
