Hemp Tatted Flowers
Still practicing my tatting!
A very simple, double stitch with picots makes a pretty little flower.
Here, I am using "hemp beading thread."
I think I will use these for embellishments, or maybe to create a piece of jewelry, what do you think?
Here are some of my favorite natural looking beads that might work with my flowers.
The hemp is actually not the best thread to use for a large tatting project. For a beginner like myself, it's better to use a larger, thread made for tatting. I just couldn't help myself with wanting to use the hemp so I was thrilled to at least make a few of these little flowers with it.
The hemp and natural stone have always been my favorite combination.
Now that I have these little flowers down, maybe I'll go back to using the real tatting thread and learn to make one of those bigger tatting pieces.
Hope your weekend is a happy one!
