Whats new for 2013?

9 Comments

So in the first week of december I had a market stall in Daylesford (for any crafters reading this that intend to  go to daylesford to sell their pretty things- DONT.  People at this market would rather by dusty crap than a handcrafted piece of gold)  I didn't do as well as I would have liked but never mind.  In october and november I put my head down and my bum up working away on things to put at my market stall because heres me thinking I wouldnt have enough things for people to look at.  Anyway I made alot of oya lace, which some of you can find on my Etsy store, and some you will see here first and then on my Etsy store in the near future...So here they are:

I love your works. They are beautiful, all of them. I've got no idea how you make these tatted flowers with petals filled inside, but they are lovely. And the oya flowers are gorgeous!

I see many examples of tatted flowers with petals filled with thread, such as your white ones above. Do you just fill the petals with needle or is there a way to do it while tatting the flower? This is new for me and I haven't seen it in any books about tatting.

you make the petals as you tat, its extremely hard but it looks pretty. Im pretty sure this is a turkish technique as I havent seen anything like these anywhere else

Amazing. You make a set of longer and longer picots, and you join them at the other side of the leaf? I'm just trying to figure it out.

with the flower clusters i leave a small space between the green parts and then i sew the flower to the green so it stays in place
