What do you do with your leftovers
Whenever I finish a piece of tatting, there is always some thread left on the shuttle. Too much to throw away but not enough to bother winding back on the ball. So I make butterflies or flowers, and use them for cards or simply putting in the envelope when sending something.
I taught myself to tat from books, as a teenager, but had never met another tatter. Joining on-line groups has given me a new enthusiasm for the art, and enabled me to learn new techniques. I have even tried my hand at designing.
Any diagrams for working these tatted pieces are on my website www.handicrafts.org.uk
