Beginners help!

I'm stuck... I've just started tatting and I am now fairly happy with double stitch and getting picots vaguely even, but I can't work out how to tighten up the second/third etc motif.



I'm aiming for the picture on the right closest to the bottom, but tugging on the thread coming out of the shuttle doesn't work. The only thing I can get to move is the thread on the far left, but it doesn't seem sensible to have to shift the first motif and (eventually) everything that comes after it to adjust the latest section.

Any suggestions?

MicroFiber Cotton = Happy Tatting

Edit: I just realized I only posted this to my personal journal, so the pictures are in the previous post.

I am in tatting heaven right now. I just picked up some microfiber cotton crochet thread last week and it is AWESOME!! I am using it to needle tat and it works nicely, forgives well, you don't have to pull the stitches so tight they don't want to come off the needle and the work isn't all loose.

I took some pictures with my camera phone but they are all blurry so I will post pictures later after I have some with the regular camera.

This thread is not going to be right for all types of lace but for wash and wear, little girls everyday wear, there are a lot of places I will be using this *happy dance*

WooHoo!!

Picture of medallion -- MicroFiber Cotton = Happy Tatting

As promised :)

The medallion is probably about 2in in diameter.


Here is a close up of the stitches:

WOW!! I am such a slacker...

I know I have not posted anything lately, I have been teh Busy and much tired too. Apologies.

I went to A-Kon 19; I was less than impressed with the outfits I put together but I think the leather corset I made was pretty good for my first time ever to make anything like that.




My new sewing machine worked like a champ, no problems sewing the leather AT ALL!!!!! After doing all the eyelets manually with a hammer, I recommend the tool allykatt uses (and perhaps would be so kind as to post about). She told me how easy her eyelets were and I was envious >.<

I took the first two of the 6 mastery classes that were offered with the purchase of my new sewing machine. They go over all the nifty things the machine can do and lets you verify the machine does them properly.


I also purchased some McCalls Patterns that were on sale for 99 cents, M5401, M5433, M5471, M5587, M5630. We shall see if I can properly cipher them and make some clothing.

I have have been playing with hemp to tat with just to see what it does. Not exactly the easiest material to work, I will post pictures when I get this motif finished.

Anyone doing anything interesting? 'til later then..
