I have wanted to make a tatted collar for a while now, but didn’t really have anyone to give it to. Recently one of my blogging friends posted a photo of herself wearing a lace collar- so the time seemed right to offer to make one for her. I went through a few of my tatting books and sent pictures of three different collars. The chosen collar was a vintage pattern, Paragon learn to tat, petals collar on page eight. I chose a vibrant colour (Altin Basak size 50, colour 334) and set about tatting a little each day. It took a few weeks of chipping away, but I finished the collar last weekend. It has been posted and well received!
As usual, I like to send a letter and a treat with a package. The parcel is below.
I’m pleased that I have been able to make this collar and that the colour looks so good, sometimes it’s hard to predict when many vintage patterns are pictured in white. It has also been nice to spread some crafty love to a person who does so much for others.
I wonder when you have shared some crafty goodness? Feel free to share in the comments below.
Until next time, happy tatting
