Projects shared

Almost that time of year! Classes will be starting soon!!

While we anticipate the first class of Fall, Andrea shares a project she completed. She writes, “This quick, no sew, no glue, project used some tatted UFO’s, stray tatted trim & test medallions to embellish this wool & dupioni silk bottle wrap. It took courage to needle punch through the tatted work, but being test pieces with mistakes made them a perfect sacrifice for the mottled effect of needle felting. Traditional use of tatting? No, a unique way to employ odds & ends? I think so. I’m a long time fan of Georgia’s tatting classes and a huge fan of the talented students. My work schedule prevents me from attending class but I am ever grateful that I’ve been allowed to remain on the student roster enjoying everyone’s inspiring work. I hope you enjoy this fun piece, it buttons around my water bottle making it pretty and easier to grip.”

What a great way to use up those odds and ends and even some “mistakes” that gather in the corners. I appreciate that Andrea shares her process:

It’s a piece of wool felt cut to size, some dupioni silk scraps and saved embroidery thread snips needle felted to the wool first. Next I positioned the tatting and needle punched it into the project. One of the little medallions had a hole large enough for a button to pass through making a nice closure. Finally I used a wavy blade rotary cutter to achieve the top edge.

See you in class!
