Tatties Turns ONE: Giveaway!

Happy Birthday Tatties!
Today is the anniversary of the day the first Tattie was worn. Want to see it?

Tatties are one year old today.
This girl continues to be my inspiration she's just over a year old and still uses them.

She also likes to pull them out of their little purse.


How Tatties came to be:
This little girl was born.

The nurses put a purple bow on her lil head.

My husband asked how they got it to stick. The nurse told him KY and showed us a tube of this:

We took the little gal home.

I have tatted for about 5 years and had a little tatted pink flower hanging around that I planned to use on a card for embellishment. I had picked up some swarovski crystals for jewelry making before the gal was born and decided to put it on the flower. Bling! Lovely. So when I had to take my little one in for a jaundice test I got her all dressed up and used some KY to put the Tattie on her head. Better than the bow! I took the opportunity to take a pic of all the kids.

And since then Tatties have expanded to different shapes and colors and are worn by various types of people. Cancer patients, baby girls, older girls and Mommies too! Can you just imagine how fabulous they'd look on a bride?! They are used in scrapbooking, cardmaking and jewelry as well. there are even knock offs.... /:{

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. My aunt used to tat and taught my cousins and my mother. I have never been able to do it. It is a special talent and not many I know have it. Great job!!! I love the butterfly! :O)

Tatties are the perfect accessory for our new baby girl! With everything else to worry about with a newborn it has been so convenient to simply put a Tattie on her head and have her still look cute and feel comfortable. They are much more convenient than the big flower headbands. Even if we aren't going out to see people, we can put a Tattie on her at home and not worry if it is uncomfortable for her.
It is the perfect combination of elegance for a girl, but keeps comfort in mind. And a comfortable baby cries less.
