Spoon Collection In Tatted Lace



I found a spoon by Rodger aka Freedman and from this point my mind raced with tons of ideas, and made many of my own designs.
My favorite is the pink one so far.
This took one try and only two hours to make and then I shaped it on a real baby spoon to dry.
The blue one, I want to use on a corsage for a baby shower, or on a gift.  Very easy to make no split rings or tricky stuff.
Made up the tiny flower, and slept on how to attach it to the gold one, still less than 2 hours.



Did the purple one with a Celtic look, from the leaf pattern a couple of posts ago. Shuttle was a gift from another blogger friend Chantel I love lily of the valley too, thanks again :)

  3. Very neat! I've never seen a tatted spoon before. It looks like it would be tricky to design.

    Is that an antique printer drawer? I use one myself to display my shuttles.

  4. Never seen a tatted spoon how unusal and all of them different. The celtic one certainly looks like one of those wooden Welsh love spoons

  10. What a novel idea! Very cute, too. I, too, am having a hard time deciding which one I like the best - all of them are pretty cool!

    2. All The spoons where made up by me except for the blue one and that one I did just try to copy on my own from a man that does not have the free pattern available anymore.Below Kathy Niklewicz remembers him in a needle tatting club years ago, wonders where is he now.

  13. The spoons are lovely, I can see them on a baby card too. Great display too. You must have wonderful dreams.

  14. Thankyou,Yes, I do see many things in my dreams, any if I don't sleep I just keep tatting :)

  15. Wonderful idea! I have always wanted to tat Rodger's spoon (and cup and saucer) but never got around to it (as they say). You have taken the spoon design to new 'heights', so to speak! Such clever designs and a great way to display them!

    I'm surprised that some tatters haven't seen Rodger's spoon, which was made to go with his 3-D cup and saucer, published back in 2003 on the internet on a 'needle tatters' site, which unfortunately is now closed. I believe I do have the patterns for all three, but it would take a while for me to find them! Maybe one of the needle tatters has info about them. I'm also curious about Rodger himself, and his tatting history.

    1. Well Thank You for the information I found his spoon on pintrest and when I went to the sight they had the cup only and some other things but that was it I did find other people talking about him but ran into a dead end. I did not know he was a needle tatter and that is very interesting thank you for sending in the information!
