Finished at last! I feel like I've been working on this project forever. It's unfortunately not a complete success. As you can see from the picture, it's rather small. I'm afraid it's just going to have to go in storage until I know a nice 8-year-old who's into tea parties.
I do love the edging, and am fairly partial to the look of filet crochet (especially when it's not being used to make a doily). I'd like to use this border on something else--perhaps sleeve cuffs?
If you'd like to tackle this project yourself, you can find the pattern here. I used a 2.25 mm hook and Aunt Lydia's Classic Crochet Thread Size 10 in color 419 (ecru, 2 balls), 486 (navy, 1/2 ball), 480 (delft, 1/2 ball), and 1 (white, 1/2 ball).
