Crafty Older Daughter’s fidget is tatting: whether in class or at social gatherings, she keeps herself focussed by making knotted lace with a shuttle or bobbins of thread. Traditionally, tatted lace is used as trims for collars, sleeves or dress hems. Her choice of tatted projects are coasters for my photographic use, and butterflies.
Unfortunately, sometimes her work gets tangled and relegated to the knotted discard pile (see above Feature Photo). Otherwise, it has been my job to put these butterflies to use. So far, I have made cards.
Do you have any idea how else I could incorporate these lovelies into giftables?
