Filet Lacis

This group will include filet lacis and Buratto.  Filet lacis is made on a square knotted mesh, which was formerly handmade, using the same knot as an old time fisherman's net.  Buratto is made on a woven cloth with large spaces between the threads, but the decorative stitches are the same as for filet lacis.  The Lacis net can also be worked by hand in rounds, but the resulting round pieces are not embellished with additional embroidery.  Filet Guipure.

Can't help you with that, Jenny. sorry.

But I do have a question of my own - how does one stitch a Lenop net (the purchased woven net) to fabric? I would love to insert Filet squares into fabric (or cut sqyuares of fabric to stitrch between filet net squares - make a patchwork, in other words, but I just don't know quite how to work the joins,. the Leno net is easy to puull apart, so it might need to be doubled over, but then there would be raw edges....!!!!!!!

I go round and round in circles - and get no-where!! If anyone has dome something like this, I would Lover to hear from them.

This might help solve Jenny's problem, too, as it sounds like she has wound up with a net 'fabric' to finish off.

Lorelei thanks for the reply. I know that 4 sided hem and have done it a few times myself. The problem is I have "holes" in my fabric where I have withdrawn the threads, so there are places where there are no threads to 4 side stitch around.

I am liking it like the "lacy edge" in Hardenger, the difference being the hardanger edge is cut 4 leave 4, where my edge is cut 2 leave 2. 

In hardanger the remaining threads are needle weaved  while in this type of filet they are all wrapped for strength. They are only slight differences between the two, but a world of difference in a practical sense.

Any other suggestions would be grateful.

I have not done anything exactly like what you describe. But I have used 4 sided stitch as an edge stitch on pulled thread work and on an embroidered tablecloth. Even 1 row of 4 sided stitch seems to be sufficient, but working a 2nd row inside the first, over folded fabric would be very secure.

Does anybody have any more ideas?

Evening All,
Just wondering if someone here can help me.
I am trying to do a hem on a sample of filet, but it is not the knotted mesh filet. I am making the mesh by withdrawing threads from fabric, ie cut 2 threads, leave 2 threads.
I am concerned that when I cut the final mesh threads after doing the buttonhole hem, that the fabric threads will fall apart. If anyone has any suggestions how to stop this, or any references I can check I will be eternally grateful.
I have a number of references to the hems on the knotted mesh, but I feel that this does not suit my drawn mesh.
TIA. Jenny

This album has quite a few filet lacis photos, including several of the work in process.  Very interesting.

Thank you Lorelei. There are so much information about everything it's like entering a candy store. :)

Kirsten:  On our sister site    http://needlelacetalk.ning.com/group/filetlacis     I have collected links to a lot of resources for filet lacis.  Look under the group icon there.  Finnwig and some other good sources are there, both suppliers and some basic information.
