Pinterest Challenge, A Powder Puff!

                             For when the humidity is too much, think Powder Puff  :)
Yes another idea or as we say " PinChers"  from us  "Pin Chicks"
And yes, I had to use tatting again :)

This tatting pattern starts with this shape above, this is from  another Asian tatting book called "Tatted Lace," I even made  myself a Picot gauge.


                           
The diagram even shows how many beads to add too.                              
                                     
                                     There are two more layers shown added below.


I had fun with this, even making the puff handle!


I can buy a pack of wooden spoons for one dollar.  I painted the spoon white.  


I stitched the feathers that were sewn to a ribbon before purchase.   After cutting circular shapes and stitching one side with the tatting and the other the feathers in spiral shape.


 A very soft puff appears!


  You can't get more frilly than this, ha ha ha :)

  3. You have WOWed us again ! It seems so vintagy, so like a Czarina ! Love the tatting, too .
    Okay an impish thought just came to mind -- if you sew in a couple of tiny bells, it would such a cutie when you puffed & the bells jingled.
    You'll have to make this for your granddaughter, I bet !
