Delicate Heart Idea

I got an idea long ago when Carolyn from Shopping My Stash posted and sent me a tatted heart around paper. I also remember  Margaret from Margarets Designer Cards, every   once in a while complains, about some tatting,                                                                                                                                ( like one shuttle tatting) being so fidgety at times. 

Feeling EXPERIMENTAL I decided to try punch holes in a card stalk heart as evenly as I could.
I found it a dream to tat on with fine thread no Fidgeting around! So Now what I was trying to see if removing the paper afterwards would work.

                        
       

                                                                    




                            
     
Size 80 was delicate I knew it would need better support but really didn't want to tat any more and realized  not tatting inside would be back to fidgety :(  This was flimsy, what to do?
I could do the filet lace like Ninetta on her blog at times, but realized I don't know how to do that, and no time. 
Beads I added Beads :) it really helped and little hair spray :)



End result

I also changed my mind again and instead of changing colors I am going to stick with the one I got :) more on this next week.
Have a great Day

  3. That’s really clever! And pretty. You could sew it onto fabric perhaps?

  4. Very delicate and beautiful, I think I would have either have left the paper on or put fabric in the middle,
    I can't remember complaining, I can't tat size 80 my eyes are not good enough, but I admire anyone who can tat very thin thread.

    1. I know I struggle with black thread. I know it was you cause I liked your use of the word fidgety it seems appropriate 💖😄💖

    2. Yes on leaving it on paper, I just had to remove it cause I didn't keep paper nice to start with.

    3. I struggle with very thin thread and black I just can't see the stitches, It's my eyes since the cancer ops some things are harder to see, I admire all those who can tat with the thin thread, I will just have to admire their work.

  5. Clever idea! I bet it would be easier to design at tatted heart using that method.

  7. What an excellent experiment & you still have a dainty heart :-) I Love your use of the bead chain. Reminds me of Jon Yusoff's tatting directly over a string of beads.
