This is Suneeti's tatting. Cool, eh?
There seems to be some confusion! (In comments) The jeans and shirt above are Suneeti's - she showed me what she does with the motifs and I was so impressed I tried it on the NY T-shirt above, for The Boss.
She gave me some #10 thread, which I do not have as I got rid of the last of it after the TAT course. I never use that size, but realize I have been too hasty in discounting it.
Using this Lizbeth sample for kid's motifs is brilliant! The motifs are sturdy, and being small, they do not disappear into the fabric of the clothes.
Smaller threads are a bit delicate for jeans and Ts, so I am going to enjoy tatting up springtime motifs for The Boss and Mini-Boss in the heavier thread.
I had originally put the motif on the heart on the front of the shirt, bit it distracted from the famous logo and I did not like it, so it went onto the back. I like it, but The Boss was NOT impressed!
I should have tatted one instead for The Boss's Little Brother - he might have enjoyed a decoration or two on his 'manly' t-shirt!
I suspect that her nose is out of joint at the arrival of another baby in the family, and a girl at that! It will take more than a tatted t-shirt to mollify her mood!
Next: Where do you put it all?
You know, the tatting you have no use for, that you cannot bear to throw away and that you have no one to give it to.... Where does it go?
I have kept the pieces I like and can't get rid of in an old cookie tin that took up precious space and was too big. Imagine my delight ( I am so easily pleased!) when I stumbled across this little number in a dollar store. Small and just the right size for my goodies. And only one dollar!
Lastly: #3 of the Motif Challenge:
I cannot decide if I like making necklaces... It was a learning thing, but became a tad boooorrrring....I will wear it to work and see if anyone notices.
I am not a necklace wearer, but had it on yesterday and forgot all about it! I will take this tatting out into the world and see what happens - if anything!
