Pearl Tatting Mat


All chains, and all fun in size 20 thread.


Something about this look, I just love.  It is different and I originally was cleaning off my shuttles.  This was a bit of a mind teaser with 3 shuttle but enjoyable.




I saw something like this and it was square and spun from the center.
This is done with out breaking the thread making a strip then a turn and then another.
A picture of when  it was young :)
I was so busy in April I forgot to show what I made for grandchildren with felt. 







Two different tails beaded and two had buttons.  I love sewing felt.
Rabbits really do hide in vegetables you know.

  8. I'm guessing the first row doesn't form arches until you add the second row? And, oh, how I love the hiding bunnies!

    1. Thank you, a single string runs down the middle, as you switch it off and form the loops with the chain stitch on each side. In the last picture there are 2 rows shown. turning to go down the next row is odd and if like I will do more and take better pictures next time.

  11. You'll have to show us how you made the mat, it's unusual and pretty! Love those slippers, I'm sure the children must've been delighted with them.
