Have you ever seen these before? I spotted them on Roseground Supplies page a few weeks ago. Of course I HAD to have one - or two - or three!!! They offer a pattern to buy to go with the bangles but me being an independent old git didn't want the pattern!!! I looked at what they were offering and realised that the pieces were sewn on after they were made. That's NOT my way of working.
I have a 'THING' about adding 'stuff' to tatting after it's finished (or, come to that, adding tatting to things!) whether it be beads, sequins or accessories. I never, ever think that's a safe thing to do. Glue gives up 'gluing' in the end and thread comes undone if things are sewn on.
In the bottom picture you can see my initial experiments. The rest you'll have to wait for!!!
