Here is what I have so far: This picture was taken before the tatting was introduced
And then I added this:
A bit of one shuttle rings that are not completely closed, tatted with Yarnplayer's Stardate size 40. I machine sewed this down to the fabric and then took a length of thread and made little french knots to secure the rings on the outsides.
I really like how it looks. I think the final piece is going to look superb with little tatted bits all over. :o)
Oh and if the machine stitching looks horrid, go easy on me. lol I am completely new to sewing so while I know that what I have here is probably crap... I am really proud of it. :o)
