Tatting Butterfly and ( Pattern )

This is my tatting butterfly. I have made it using thread size 40, and one shuttle out of ball. It is not big deal butterfly-in my opinion. Just motifs join with the center of the butterfly which is simpler than the motifs. I think a beginner can do this pattern. It is a charted pattern.

Here its picture

An idea of sewing it on a fabric, or use it as an applique.
We can add sequins, and beads to sewing it , and in the same time will add a beautiful touch in it.
Here is the pattern,
Happy tatting for you all.

My Tatting Collar

Here is my tatting collar. I have made this one using Egyptian cotton size 40, and two shuttles in some stages, and one shuttle in another stages. This is a charted pattern.
I want to say something about this collar, "I LOVE IT". Usually I don't admire what I am doing , just like it, and try to learn something new, but this one I really really enjoyed doing it, love it during making it, love it after I finished it, still in love with it lolol.
Here is its pictures, and stages of making it.

Close look at its edge

Flat picture for it
Now its stages
First stage ,
I have made this stage using two shuttles. In this stage I have defined the suitable length of the collar by doing enough- for me- units.
Second stage
It is the inner edge, and it is been done in two parts.
Part 1( I have made it using one shuttle out of ball)
 Part 2 of inner edge ( use also one shuttle doing it)
Third stage ( outer edge) It is one part, and I have made it using two shuttles.

Close look at the outer edge
Finished!!!!!
Hope you love it too.
Happy tatting

My Tatting doily

I have made this doily using thread size 20, and one shuttle out of ball in first stage. In second stage I have used two shuttles. This stage was really tricky- for me- As I have made each flower with its leaves one by one, and joined that flowers with first stage. The last stage of doing it was the edge with one shuttle out of ball again.  the edge was two rounds. The first one was wide, and make the doily ruffled!!! The second round makes it just nice edge as it narrowed that ruffles.It is middle size doily -about 43 cm across.
Here are its pictures (the only mistake I did when I get its final picture  is ,I got it AFTER I wash it) I didn't block it well so its final picture was not good as it is in a real)

 Another bad picture lol
pictures of its stage
Here is the second stage of doing the flowers with their leaves.

 I forgot to tell you that this pattern is charted pattern from Russian magazine.

Happy tatting for you all.

Flower snowflake tatting motif

I have made this motif using thread size 40, and one shuttle out of ball when I did the flower, and two shuttles when I did the edge. I LOVED working with fine thread more. It is very easy, and comfortable. They always said that beginner should use bigger thread to learn, I agree with them , but want to add that  you need bigger thread to "SEE" what you are learning NOT because it is easier  to deal with bigger thread, and bigger needle or hook.

From my little experience, and through my learning I have used thread size 10, 20, 30, 40, and believe me the more I go through finer thread the easier I tat. It happened the same with me when I  crocheted, and even knitted . So when I use finer crochet hook, and very finest thread like thread size 100 it was easier for me.

so what is the easier aspects of working with fine thread, and fine hook or needle??!!!
First , it is so so light to carry that fine hook or needle, and also that fine thread.
Second , it will give you better results specially with tatting, and crochet.
Third , it  will be easier to mange that fine thread , and it will be easier to finish your stitch.
Forth, you will get so so nice delicate , and lacy work so you will LOVE the results more.

Now here are the picture of my new motif,


 Another picture of it
I love my stitches more in this motif.

Happy tatting for you all.

My tatting collar

I have made this collar using thread size 20, and one shuttle in a stage of working , and two shuttles in the last round edge.
It a charted pattern. Still love charted pattern in any craft including tatting. I have practised some new things in this pattern like the flower motif , and that circular chain. I have used Sewmate shuttle , and love it because it holds good amount of thread , and it is tight to give me a good gauge.
The first edge of this collar which is around the neck was really trick for me because there is thread between two rings, and I wanted to keep the same length of that thread, so I have mark 4mm on my index finger , and use it as a ruler to measure the  length between rings. lol any way it is what came to my mind to solve my problem.
Still need to perfect my picots, and my stitches; I still don't like my stitches, and picots. I think tatting needs more good , and even stitches , and picots. I need to learn how to get the same length of picots without "picot gouge." I cannot use it for every single picot.

 A stage of this collar;
Close look;
Happy tatting for all of you.

My tatting doily

I have made this doily using a cotton thread size 20, and one shuttle. I like to use the method shuttle out of ball than two shuttles. I don't use two shuttles until I use both of them. This thread is an Egyptian cotton with silk finishing . It is very nice to work with , but it is slippery , and need to work in tight way to get better result.This doily is about 40 cm across.

Nothing new about this doily just ds(s), and picots. and after you make the center you just start to make the edge, and join with the center. It is a charted pattern. I love charted pattern more than written one. I have made this doily just to practise the normal (ds) and picots.

It gets some times to end it. Just one bad memory about this doily; I have made some mistakes in edge , and had to cut them out. I don't like to wrap tatting out. It is so boring, slow, and spoil the thread too specially when you work with shuttle so when I discovered the mistake, I cut that part out, and start from beginning ( with nervous of course ) lol. finally it is finished.


Here another picture for it during working it:
