Tatted Barefoot Sandals
Wow! This looks amazing!
Needle Tatted Chainmaille
Grand Daisy Tatted Lace Choker
I use Beacon Stiffen Stuff, but there are plenty of good brands. Just make sure whatever you pick doesn't discolor your thread.
What type fabric stiffener do you suggest? So many choices.
Good job and thanks so much!
I've just finished one sandal, so stoked as I'm a total beginner… I've just realised I still have another one to do, hopefully I'll get quicker, I've already been at it for two days haha. Thanks so much for this gorgeous pattern, all of your projects are wonderful!!
Needle Tatting A Necklace
You can tie off the centers or you can make the last picot a mock picot by tying the threads together at the same length as the other picots and then continue the next round from there, which is what I do.I'm not quite sure what you're referring to as joins on the left or right, but as far as these chains are concerned, you tie without reversing and continue working around the daisy in the same direction.
I used 20 craft wire, but the using that exact size isn't vital.
What gage wire is used?
Sorry for what may be a dumb question, but I am a beginner and need some clarification. Are all the centers of the smaller daisies made separately and than joined on the 2nd round? It looks as if they each have to be tied and ends hidden before a second one can be ended. Also in the past videos I have watched, after a chain in made you usually RW and tie. A join has been on the left. These joins are made on the right and than tied?
Love your designs. your written instructions are very clear and easy to follow. all the errors I see in my work are because I am a newbie and sometimes pull one ring tighter than the other and also one chain tighter than the other. I have to make sure to measure as I am working. Please post more projects
Thanks so much for the quick response. I am going to try this choker as my first written instruction needle tatting project. So far have just been making things from youtube. Most of the projects there were for beginners, and although I am a beginner I want to know so much more, especially how to read instructions for more complex projects and also how to make patterns smaller or larger without disrubting the proportions. So much to learn, but so much fun. I love all your projects and will attempt them all. Thanks again
How much thread should I allow as a tail? love, love love this pattern
Tatted Lace Corsage Bracelet
Thank you! I've never measured the length of my tails, I usually just play it by ear. Since the piece is made from smaller motifs you shouldn't need much for each section, maybe start with a foot for a daisy and then adjust to the right amount for the next one. You'll need a bit longer for the 'chain' portions, just guesstimate about how long they'll need to be and that should get you there.Sorry I couldn't give a clearer answer.
