Reticules!

As posted before, I've been working on a new project with my Mom.

Mom crochets, those doilies and bedspreads (eventually I will get her to crochet a shawl!), but it had been a while since she picked up string and hook. When she saw I was sewing reticules, she asked about them. I showed her pictures of various kinds and she saw the crocheted ones. *Grin*

So, we went through some old doilies she had packed away from 20+ years ago to see what we could do with them and she started to crochet again.

I make the inner liner and we attach them. Here are some we just finished.

This one Mom just finished crocheting.

Experimental crochet

With liner pinned in.

Liner hand tacked inside.

Unfinished, but this is the outside.

Closed

Finished - open.


Finished - closed.

This was crocheted many years ago, made for the arms of the sofa or chair.

Burgundy taffeta pouch, each piece hand tacked onto the pouch.

Opened.
