Came across some old Filet
If you find old filet crochet on a chemise or table runners or Antimacassars. Usually 40s to 60s. era. They are fun to play with. You can cut them and sew by hand or machine. Filet does not run. The holes are good to thread ribbons through. Stain with tea or coffee as I have done and hang some rusty, simple element on each one. They are going to be my book bags for the small versions of journals I create. I am thinking, perhaps I will make a video with my ideas. Gee lots of typos!
