Tatting Bonnet with Anne Orr, Plus More



I got that spot out, I wet only the stained area and gentle scrubbed in a very tiny amount of these three cleaners, which are: peroxide, lemon juice, and bleach, then rinsed quickly so it would not ruin fibers.
YEA!
This is last round that I can lay it flat (mostly), I love this delicate look. 

They called for the next round, which is the same as last one, but flipped.   

Remember Frivolenka's Anchor click here for pattern there is some English on the pattern too,  I decided to use the very large Lisbeth thread from Handy Handys this takes less than and hour to make :)

  2. That bonnet is beautiful. Really delicate. You were brave with the bleaching. I used just plain hydrogen peroxide on something as I had read it works, but it was not effective. Then I mixed it with baking soda and it still wasn’t effective! Glad you got your spot out. : )

    1. I did test the scraps I cut out of the ball, A while ago I did the peroxide thing and it worked with chocolate stain but did need more. I never thought about the baking soda.

  3. Phew, well done for getting the stain out. The bonnet is so delicate, lovely. I like that the anchor is tatted in much thicker thread - what a range tatting can accomplish.

    1. Thank You, tatting really can take on many looks, I don't mind the larger threads if the project is short. :Larger threads can be hard on the hands.

  4. Oh I'm glad that you bleached the spot, the bonnet is lovely, they must have been fashionable at that age as there are 3 in the book. I don't know of any modern book with a bonnet. I love the anchor, it's perfect with that thread.

  7. That was a strong chemical attack, MT! So, the bleach did not leave a yellow stain? Good for you!
    I love your pony and anchor.
    But my favourite bonnet remains the one you made for your granddaughter!
