Tatted lace dress finds an owner!



You can use a wooden bead or this time I had a bead I purchased on Ebay!
One wire folded in half and looped through head then arms and so on.

Craft glue to wire, and a peach tatting thread.  I made arms too long and snipped them shorter just dipped the ends in glue so thread won't run away. 

Shoulder straps too long, and tied them together in back.

I just tatted rings in black for hair to match the China girl face then left long ends and attached to wires from frame in back of head.

And here, she will wait for Granddaughter :)

  10. I'm impressed with all your tatting! And using a printer's tray for display is a great idea.
