What to do with all those little tatted motifs




Make beautiful tatted organza bags for tatting or projects or gifts etc.

I did order some from eBay just make sure 4X8 inches no smaller for tatting bags to fit projects 

some I messed up on, and added a pretty flower


I turned inside out and add " frey check" the bag seams so they last a while, not to tatting it makes to harder to stitch down.

I start and sew the motif on when bag is inside out.

Do not place motif on bag too high up or in middle  of bag

place in center and low on bag this looks much better when bag is closed.
Find a card stock paper to place in bag, so you do not go both sides of the bag.

You can use 2 or three pins to hold motif down as you turn the bag inside out. Hopefully these tips can help you if you haven't tried this already.

  4. Thank you for the nice idea,..and for the 3 bags that you sent me. I use one of them and carry it around everywhere. It holds a small tape measure, tiny scissors, your strawberry pouch ,which holds 2 thimbles, a needle , ball,thread and 2 shuttles. So, I haven't made my chatelaine yet, but since your bags have such cheerful colors, I am not sorry.

  5. Well you are welcome, I know what you mean, Its hard to find time to do all those things you want to do. As I was typing it I remembered the words to the song "Time in a bottle" by Jim Croche it's a little sad though. Do you know that song?

  9. Your bags are very pretty. I did a few of these a while back and filled them with various nice-scented spices and dried flowers to put in closets and drawers.

    I like your idea of using card stock to prevent the needle going through both layers of the bag. I wish I had thought of that!
