Then Saturday I came across a Youtube video that actually actually slowed the process down and explained it. Ruby Lockwood made a simple instructional video for making a simple earring. I had some of the basic supplies already for other projects I'm working on. The only thing I didn't have was a Tatting Needle. But hey, I reroot dolls and that is one long needle which seemed to be similar to what she was using.
So I started Tatting. First came a doily center just to see if I would like it. I did so next came these:
Then I attempted a larger doily but lets just say I missed a step and it didn't quite work out the way I thought it would.
So I turned back to what worked and made these for a friend, Jo.
And last night I decided Mom's Earrings could use a necklace to complete the looks so...
So that's what I learned over the weekend. It wasn't the craft I was intending to work on but since it is something I wanted to learn to do I'm happy.
Now, tonight I finish the necklace and attempt the doily again. Wish me luck.
