A Tatted Barrette, Motif #3
After seeing Jan Stawasz's incredible website, I was inspired to try to create my own barrettes. The hardest part was finding a supplier for the barrette parts.
I covered the blank with black velvet and then attached it to the clip. The tatting (valiere squares, Fora #20) was attached with fabric tac. I'm also working on an oval version, I hope to be able to share it soon.
I wanted to share a non-tatted project I recently completed. I have a sister who is a horse fanatic so I found an antique pattern for a filet crochet horse head antimacassar. Its a Christmas present. I made it with #30 thread
