Dagged edge lace?

Next in the series of The Needles Excellency, printed in 1631, are some dragged edge laces. These patterns are really pretty, and might make great edgings for hems of aprons, or some other low stress and low wear situation. Otherwise I would think they might be under too much stress with so few connections on the large free floating motifs. I would consider connecting the fleur-de-lis from one to the other for stability if this is worked as an edging.   As usual, printables are below. Hope you enjoy!
