More edging...


from Mary Konior's 'A Pattern Book of Tatting'. This is one shuttle full of Lizbeth size 20 for the 'butterfly' edging. For the 'scrunchie' I used Valdani size 8 and this took two Sew Mate shuttles full. I am not sure yet if I will add more. My hair is thin so I have to more than double the twist, and the white is underneat anyways....

Last week my friend called and said that she found a clearence sale on the Valdani thread. 25 cents a ball! Boy, did we have fun going threw the different colors...They were in a package of 3, some 4 and a few had 2 in a package and I think I bought 17 packages! Ahhhh..... the little things in life.

How did you do that scrunchie? I love the butterfly edging and the thread deal is fantastic! Have you tatted with any of it yet? I'd love to know what you think of it =)

I really like that butterfly edging! Looks great. The scrunchie looks good, too. You have a good friend to tell you of such a wonderful deal. And multiple balls of a lot of it - lucky!

What size is that Valdani thread? You certainly stocked up -- it brings a happy tear to my eye to see so much new thread. (Are you an unrepentant thread junkie too?)

Your butterfly edging and scrunchie look so perfect. Love them both. Well done!
