Actually I'm designing some pieces to decorate different shape of boxes, which Inga Madsen will make and teach in a new book. I asked her to make this book together, because I thought of the lovely little tatted pieces everybody has made, but perhaps has no practical use for them. Making these fabric covered boxes is such a funny thing to do and decorate them with a lovely tatting is superb. Naturally those boxes can also be decorated with embroidery or other techniques. I designed this piece for the oval box.
