Butterfly Chatelaine Pin

Students will learn frontside/backside tatting; use scrap thread to facilitate a join into a tight spot as well as use it as a placeholder to facilitate a join where there is no picot; encapsulate thread as well as something other than thread. Class discussion will include various ways to make leashes for tatting tools.

Beginner/Intermediate:  Knowledgeable and proficient with rings, split rings, chains, and joins. 

Materials: 2 shuttles; 1 (size 1) safety pin (with loop – don’t use coilless) – 1-1/16” top to bottom;
6”-8” scrap thread (same size, contrasting color from wing);
for leashes to attach tatting tools to your pin- ¼” metal split rings and lanyard hooks; you may find small hackle pliers helpful.

* ¼” metal split rings (or soldered jump rings) – you’ll need 2
* Lanyard hooks – you’ll need 2
* Scrap thread
* Crochet hook for joins (if you like to use one)

Friendship Angels

Students will learn split rings, working with beads on two shuttles; padded rings; and use scrap thread to facilitate a join into a tight spot within the various projects which include angels with no beads, lots of beads, and non-round beads.


2 shuttles, loaded CTM; 3 yards on Sh 1, 1 yard on Sh 2. (I had thread left over on each shuttle, but I tat tight)

On Beyond Edging

Students will learn to use two different colors without tying them together; use scrap thread as a placeholder to facilitate joins where there is no picot; and find the optimum place to turn a corner, using a pocket mirror, within the various projects which include an edging, two motifs, and a frame.
