I can't come up with a word for this. Beautiful, gorgeous, it's both and it's named just right. It looks like the kind my mom wore years ago. I saw a picture of her wearing it back in the 20's. I just have to make it for my grand daughter. I can easily make it larger to fit a 7 year old. Just a thought but it would make a great book mark too!

How neat! It can definitely be made using different thread weights and hook sizes. You could also try incorporating beads along the scallops. D

This adorable headband would make gift as well as a quick project for a craft sale. The initial finished size is for an infant, but it would be incredibly easy to make the lace longer for other sizes. If you worked it in black, it would make a nice choker for your favorite Goth teenage girl. I have some beautiful pastel thread, and it would work up like a miniature flower garden. So many ideas for this project!

Yes, there are so many different options, and ways of using this! I'm glad it inspired you!
