Tatted and Knitted Picture



Hi,

Today is a lovely here in somerset, the sun is shinning and the blue sky, it feels like summer, and for the first time this year it feel warm.


Today I decided to show you a picture which I made sometime ago and is hanging in my bedroom,


These pictures show up some close up parts of the picture.



The original picture was from a woman magazine that was published some years ago, the little bits around the flower was crochet, well I am sorry I cant crochet so I designed the bits and did them in tatting, and tatted small flowers. They are then sewn on net.


.
The large flower is knitted with embroidery thread of three strands on no 14 knitting needles, yes it takes a little time but is worth it, the buds at the top are just a few rows and then gathered up and stuffed which makes a bud.

The tatted flowers have small beads in the middle and there is a small butterfly done in two strands of embroidery thread, it is not easy doing tatting in embroidery thread and two stands have to done very carefully as the thread can break very easily.


I hope you have enjoyed looking at this picture, its amazing just how many things can be so simply in tatting.


Have a lovely weekend , thanks for visiting my blog and I hope to see you again on my blog.
Hugs Margaret

  3. Hi Margaret - Docrafts have closed the blog down - the characters and the daisy and dandelion range are very popular and are sell outs, the decision to close is nothing to do with sales.
