Decorate your hands (My desgin)

This is my first tatting design . They called it "Slave bracelet" , but I don't like this name. Maybe I will call it "Henna Bracelet" why??? because it seems like Black Henna Tattoo which some Arabic countries do it in wedding's celebration , and also Indian ladies do it on their lovely hands.  

I have made this bracelet using Egyptian cotton size 20, and two shuttles. I think my tatting stitches are better in this work. what is your opinion ??? see them better or still the same?????
I have tried this bracelet using needle, but don't like it with needle so I have replaced it with the shuttle.

Oh I hear you !!! telling me you still learn , and you design ?!! lololl my answer is there are two things I like about crafts one of them  is to learn them , second is to try designing . I most thing I don't like is to work, and work without anything new.

closer oner

Its last working stage
You also can see the closer I used for it
(Thanks for watching, and hope you like my design)

Tatting Bookmark

   I have made this little bookmark using thread size 30, and one shuttle. Nothing new about this tatting piece. I am trying to make my stitches even, and nice because I still don't like my stitches. I don't control thread in a good way yet specially when I am doing a chain. I feel my fingers weak, and didn't give me a good tension yet.

   In tatting we use the middle finger to tight the stitches, but my middle finger is weak, and didn't grab the thread tight yet. I use the index in crochet not middle so I need to train this finger more for tatting.

   I use shuttle better now, control it better specially it is a small shuttle, and light weight. Also there is no problem to flip the stitches now. I completely flip the stitches smoothly , and fast too. Shuttle doesn't fall in my hand any more lolololll .

My tatting necklace (with pattern)

My Necklace

close look at it
unfinished earring for it
The pattern:
It is graph pattern. I love and prefer graph pattern than written pattern. So I enjoyed doing my first tatted graph pattern.

I have used thread size 40, and a shuttle, but if you want to use a tatting needle ,you can use size size (7).

Tatting Necklace ( with pattern)

This is my tatting necklace with little black pearl beads in joining picots. It is very easy pattern to do with tatting.


I am starting love using shuttle, and have learned two methods of holding it.

 close look at beads 

The pattern of this necklace:
*R : 3ds, ( P, 3ds) 3 times  CL , RW.
CH :10ds,  P, 10dc , RW.
R: 3ds, P, 3ds to middle picot of last ring, 3ds, P, 3ds. CL*
Repeat those three steps

Note ,
1)I have put the bead in joining between two rings.
2)I have used cotton thread size 20, and shuttle as you see in the picture.
Happy tatting :-)

Large tatting motif (shuttle)

In this motif, I have learned to use shuttle smoothly . I also have learned the continuous method, and the magic trick of hiding the end of thread. Also I have learned to read the written pattern .Still want to learn graphic pattern which I prefer more, and also need to work on the picots ,and distances so motif will be more accurate.
One funny situation happened when I am working with this green shuttle, my 5years old niece asked me " what this is green thing?" I told her it is a needle. She answered No it is a green leaf. I told her we don't use the leaf to work with thread Dodo. She answered me Oh yes that is why this green leaf is a magic leaf. LOLLOOOLLL

By the way this is a free motif  called "Abigail"
Here is the link for it

My First first first tatting motif

Needle motif

This is my First tatting motif using tatting needle. Using tatting needle is easy, and makes tatting interesting.
I use book to start learning tatting, and I think it is lovely lace art.

Shuttle motif
This is my first tatting "motif" using shuttle. Shuttle is so so difficult for me to use.lol. My fingers hurt me so much from my practicing using shuttle. I Finally have learned using it. It is true that I still have difficult to deal with it, but I really want to use a shuttle in a perfect way.
Of course I saw some videos on Youtube, and there are some wonderful ladies who learn how to deal with shuttle, but only practice will teach me the tricks of hold it, and use it in an easy way.
Any way wanted to share that little experience with you.
