This hankie doily was made by my aunt. She passed away about 15 years ago. She was a tatter. I didn't learn from her. Wish I had. This was such a smart idea. Using a hankie in the middle. It's not tatted, but a person could use tatting to do it.
This is Joanne Engelbrecht's Christmas angel 2012. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but mine turned out a bit full figured. My daughter named after the hippo from the movie Madagascar. Gloria.
Here's a size comparison. Fox's pretty motif is on the left. She used her "Perfect Quilter" thread. There's a loonie in the middle (not a penny). The one on the right is size #30 DMC and on the bottom is #20 Lizbeth.
