Some Tatting from the Past
Before my grandma Jenalyn passed she gave me a few things that I treasure dearly. Among those are her christening dress and 4 baby bonnets. One of those bonnets is tatted. She would have been 100 years old this April. I know this was used when she was a baby and that she was the youngest child, so it might be a little over 100 yrs old.
You can see that the ties at the picots have started coming apart, along with some of the motifs.
My plan is to figure out the pattern on this and make a replica.
I treasure this little piece of tatting from the past and hope that I will be able to make one just like this for the baby daughter I hope to have.
A special thanks to my sweet blond big boy for modeling the bonnet. I love you, My Super Helper!
