Tatted Kurta



           Hello, here is one more tatted edge around neckline of a kurta. Its been worked with Black Anchor tatting thread, tkt 40. 

               Its my first trial with bead tatting with this new shuttle, quite big to hold beads. Initially i had too much difficulty in working this, its not the pattern. Firstly, i thought, i chose a wrong thread size, which is very delicate and upon that its black, hard to visualize double stitch. With all these, i started with this new shuttle. 

            So, initially thought of giving up, but  no....... no...... i couldn't leave like that. It took around a month to finish. I went very very slowly, later got hold on it. Here is finish product.

    2. Hallo Preethi , my mother used to do lots of tatting, also lace-making with lots of bobbins on a cushion .....actually she could turn her hand to most craftwork . Your pictures reminded me of watching her do this when I was a little girl : )
