"Tatting" on the embroidery machine



Marian Ecker of Murphy's design
http://www.murphysdesigns.com/tatting_19.htm
has created FSL from one of my tatting designs (with my permission, of course!) She worked from the tatting pattern that I call "Rolling Rings" headband. http://ginabea.com/tatting.php
These were so quick and easy - I have just as easily given them all away...what fun!!!

The blue headband is the first one I shuttle tatted. I wove a ribbon through it. Now I find the nylon headbands at the discount stores - usually 5 for a dollar! These are covered with fabric or braided tubes.
The nylon does not break as quickly as the plastic headbands. A little girl cannot resist seeing how far she can bend the headband ; ) When! this happens, the lace can be quickly added to a new headband.
