31  Re: Any Tatters? in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by vampedangel14 on: December 29, 2011 01:46:02 PM
I am looking for a bit of help. A couple of months ago I went to a big yard sale at a church and found a tin full of tatting thread and needles along with some tatted strips. There is a piece of tatting in progress that is on a U shaped needle. After looking all over Youtube for videos and even looking online at shops that sell tatting stuff, I have not found this U shaped needle anywhere.  Does anyone know how to use one? I am very curious and since there are many of them in this tin I was thinking I might give it a shot. Here are two pictures to help. The needles in question are black.

I did a tiny bit of destashing last night. I spent three hours hand sewing this shirt for one of my dolls. I normally have a hard time doing sleeves but everything turned out perfect. I think the crafting fairy was watching over me while I was making this. I'm insanely proud of it, even if it is simple.  He is a 70cm doll for anyone wondering about how big he is. He is my biggest at the moment.

I made it baggy so that it can be worn over other shirts. The black one underneath in the pic is tight and sleeveless so doesn't really need the extra room. The sleeves are wide enough that his fingers will not catch in the holes and the neck hold is big enough that I can get it on and off of him without having to take off his head.

I got the seams to line up perfectly and there was no holes in the pits (which happens a lot when I try to do sleeves). Yay me!

Here are some comparisons for you. They all look the same to me but I don't think they are water proof.
Glossy Accents. I really like this stuff. One layer in both pics, Sculpey base

Pendents by Lucky XIII, on Flickr

These ones were made with the Paper Glaze, one layer. Metal washer base with scrapbook paper on top.

These are Easy Cast Castin' Craft resin

I also have the Magic Gloss but have not used it yet. I need to get a UV light since there is no safe place in my room that gets sun and I don't want my cats to get into it while the pieces are curing.

I hope this helps a bit!

cassiem, I use the Castin' Craft resin and just made some up this weekend. They took an extra day to cure because it is cold in my room since there is only one vent in the hallway upstairs, but they did cure.

Here they are! To add color, I used embossing powder found in the scrapbooking isle. Green in one and the others have purple. There are also tiny seed beads in the pendents.

The green square was the first attempt I did. I used a silicone brownie pan with it and the pieces came out cloudy and the part that was to the air remained sticky. I read this could happen with silicone moulds because they caused the resin to cool too quickly and so not cure properly. I have since coated the sticky side with Sculpey glaze which worked, and some I used something called Gloss Accents and that also cured smooth and shiny.

The pendants and bangle were done using actual resin moulds in a flexible plastic. They finished curing yesterday and popped right out. They are completely clear and the part that was to the air is also very clear and smooth not sticky at all. They are still a tad flexible so once they harden up more (assuming they will) I will trim off the excess resin that went above the top so the edges are even.

The Castin' Craft is pretty easy to use since you use equal parts of it. I wish they had the bigger bottles at Michaels since I have only used the stuff twice now and my bottles are already half gone!

Have three more 'neck cozies' done, all from stash yarn. I have four more skeins of the green yarn left to destash and enough of the black/blue/purple mix for two more scarves. Cheesy

I'm wearing the last one now and am going to keep it for myself. I have a box of the scarves started to donate once it gets full.

So I have woven three scarfs now but the first two were not made from yarn from my stash but newly purchased yarn. The third was was made from yarn I've had for awhile so I can share it here, wee!
