I was just thinking about my kids and their future weddings. I have made hankies for each of them but I think my most unusual pattern was the vintage one I made for Anita. Only one has married thus far but I have them just in case. The one I did for Anita waas my first bug project. It is a vintage pattern that built itself almost inside out. It starts with this huge long lenth and each round draws it in more until it finally fits the standard 10" hankie. The hanky is silk and the thread is DMC 100.
I should take another pic that shows it full round. I will try that sometime. The long edges are made up of the motifs spread out more. I worked on this for months at the lunch table in my office. They were mesmerized. They usually are...but I have not had any one brave enough to try tatting. Some day.
