King Tut Threads

This is King Tut Color 918. You can see the color change is very short.  I thought I would try to make some trim for new shirts.  This is the top of the spool and the tatting is sitting on a clover sized shuttle.

The first pattern I tried is called Tradition. I didn't like how it  was not lying flat so I've picked another to try.  The shirt has a "V" neckline and I will trim only from the shoulder seams forward but I do have that one corner to deal with.  Any tips?

Spring Wiosna 2017 Completed

I was in a slump, a tatting slump.  I started this doily way back here so I am very happy to say that the Spring Wiosna 2017 is finally completed.

I enjoy working with vintage thread but it has its challenges.  I had one ball that was totally rotted and I had already wound a shuttle full before I found out.

The doily is all done with a size 80 threads by J&P Coats. The doily is sitting on a pink 12 inch by 12 inch sheet so you can see the size.

There are a few mistakes in this so I will be keeping this one.

Many thanks to Renulek who provided this pattern on a weekly basis.
