Oh goodness me! Four years have I been leaving little 1 inch thread snippings all over the house to vacuum later as I have created butterflies, animals and flowers. All in the name of lace and pretty things.
An artist by heart and education, a mother by choice, has left me to find an outlet that I could easily pick up and set down without much mess and danger to the children. My sister taught me tatting and I happened to use it one day on my newborn instead of a ribbon bow and fell in love.
Tatties are low profile, and adhere to the scalp with a water soluble agent, some favorites:
ky gelly / surgical jely
They can stay on for days, and easily wash off with water and are totally reusable. Much less cumbersome than the headbands that always made my baby angry. :)
In celebration Tatties will be giving away a Mother & Daughter Tattie Butterfly set (Necklace and matching Tattie) in Hot Pink.
I'm going to be a big girl this year and use Rafflecopter.
