Actual Tatting!

Yes, it's true! I do actually tat things occasionally! And sometimes I even finish them. What's that? You need proof? Ok.

Oh, look, a feather!

A pretty motif. Now what to do with it?

I know! How about a cute little amulet bag?

I might just write up the patterns for these. They both turned out much better than expected. The feather is tatted in size 20 Lizbeth, and the motif in size 50 Flora.

The motif was what came out of my shuttles while I was "doodling" with tatting. Isn't it nice when patterns work themselves out like that?

The feather was a "I wonder..." moment. I did a little searching and couldn't find anyone else having attempted anything like it, so of course I just had to give it a try. I'm very pleased with the results, though I have ideas to refine it more. And just what does one do with tatted feathers? Stay tuned... ;)

    1. No, I haven't gotten around to it yet. I will try to put together a quick little something explaining how I did it for you. :)
