Coaster or Floor Mat?

This is one coasters from a new pattern set by Robin Perfetti at "Tatting by the Bay" ,Coming soon to an Etsy near you :)

This test pattern went perfectly with the new wicker furniture in doll house, someone said I need to tat a doily for the table and this is very possible sense the area rug is size 20 thread :) and curtains too :)

The Rapunzel Cake was so tall, she had to stand on counter to blow out candles, my daughter use PVC pipe in the lower part of cake covering this with fondant stones.
She is so cute we still have time to build that tower to lock her into ha ha ha :)

Those earrings  

I ordered the gold hooks and got the tatting attached in time to give them to her. she loves them and how light they are too!

How your summer is being good to you :)

  2. The earrings are fabulous, I always wear large earrings. Can I ask you what you used to stiffen them with and if they then stay stiff.
    I made some once but they went floppy. ha ha
    Love the cake, very clever idea.

  5. How impressive--cake, birthday princess, dollhouse rug, and earrings! Your little princess will be placing requests for sure. I'm going to check out your video about stiffening. I'm always looking for a better way.

    1. Thanks You, the doll house was a side project I was working on and when I finished the test tat I was waiting for the spray paint to dry and the wicker furniture and it came to me. Thank you on the earrings too I kinda want to make another set!

  8. The coaster looks great as a rug! I'll have to watch for the pattern. The earrings look great too.

  9. Thanks Jeff, I know what you mean she is taking her time with releasing them, and I know she is a perfectionist but maybe she is really good with marketing them too ha ha ha :)

  10. Good that the 'coaster' has a home and the house has a rug! Wow, the earrings look fabulous on. That's a splendid cake. We have a tower next to our house, it's really just a holder for a water tank, but I think of it as Rapunzel's tower. It's not as decorative as your one though.
