Fabric Book.

Was browsing through some of the blogs the other day as if we have nothing better to do!  and I came across Shade Tree's Tutorial, on a Fabric book to put our tatting in. I used a pale green fabric and  different variegated threads for around the border.I am also going to tat an edging to go around the front of the book, but what else to put on there I haven't decided yet!!!So now I have my own Tatting Sampler Book to put my beauties in.   I have put the link for the tutorial here, shadetreeart.com

  6. I saw that on Shade Tree art also. Great idea isn't it? You got busy with it much faster than I did, I haven't started yet. Your book looks great!

  7. Great way to show off your pretty tatting! I can't sew on the machine, and hand stitching will take forever :(

  11. Yes, it's a wonderful way to make it easy to keep track of your tatting. Plus you don't have to worry about little ones riping the pages IF they happen to find your super story book. For it is one that all ages can read. It would be a neat for Christmas gifts too. It will be here before long too. Yes, you have me thinking of it already..thankyou!
