Needle tatting to Shuttle tatting

 

Hi guys,

Well I have tried needle tatting in the past but I have always wanted to master the shuttle tatting…….so the shuttle was picked once again……

Here is the needle tatted flower.

I think I used size 10 thread. The original post is Here if you want a quick look.

So the shuttle is back in the hand and here is what I have done with the pattern above.

Now the thread I am not sure about the size beside it is thinner. The thread I have used is the bargain I got from the wool shop a while ago.

A closer look I think.

I am happier with the joins but I need a lot more practice. I am going to be brave and try 2 colours with this pattern…….could be some swearing about to happen with this……watch this space!

 

Before I forget…..HAPPY YORKSHIRE DAY!!!!!!!!!

Luv Jane XX
