It's not the tatting, it's the thread! A thread discovery! And I just had to share this with you.
I was working on a little gift for a friend, and pulled out some brown thread from my sewing basket. But the thread seemed a little too heavy for using in the sewing machine. I put it aside. Later, when I wanted to tat a decoration to sew onto the gift, a little light bulb went off in my brain. Hmmmm, would it work? Gotta try it! Yes, that lovely brown thread tatted up very well. It's a firm thread, and probably won't need any blocking. About the size of Perle 12 thread, it feels nice on the hands.
I remember several tatters were having problems finding brown thread to tat little critters. What is it?
It's Button and Carpet Thread, a cotton-polyester blend, on a spool of 75 yards! That's a lot of little critters!
So check your sewing section for different threads for tatting. Who knows what you might find!!
Hoping you make wonderful thread discoveries!
Thanks for visiting.
