I tatted up one egg so far. The pattern is from Anna Barzyk. I used size 50 DMC thread to make this and this was the larger of the eggs from that pack I picked up a few weeks ago. It is a 4cm egg. With the finer thread, I was able to join directly to the different elements without using a separate thread to tie it all together.
I was thinking of printing out a little booklet of free egg shaped patterns to carry around with me. This way I can tat up some eggs as Honey and I run errands. He drives me and I usually play Pokemon Go or read and ebook during this time.
The newest addition to the crafting arsenal. It's a 3D pen. This one is rated kid safe. I thought it would be another craft that Kat could do and be entertained longer then one or two crafting sessions. Unfortunately, the user manual didn't actually explain clear enough on how to use it. I turned to YouTube and found one close enough to the model I purchased. I began to practice using it, so I can help Kat when she begins with it. I wasted almost a whole roll of one color before I realized how to control the flow speed. Good thing I planned ahead and purchase a box of extra filament.
Following a simple-ish tutorial on Youtube, I attempted to make a Pokeball.
I like the clean simple lines of it. But I didn't want to infringe on anyone's shuttle styles, so I went back to the stained glass idea. From tip blade to tip blade, this shuttle is 2 1/4 inches long, it's slightly shorter than a large Clover. It's still very rough, but I am please for what is essentially a first run.
