I tatted several lengths of my "Row of Crowns" edging to put on a dress for my granddaughter. I finished the tatting on our way up to Kansas City, Missouri where we spent the weekend. I didn't get much tatting done after that - we was much too busy with the family!
This morning I added it to the dress.
This is the cute little denim dress I picked up at Carter's for Kids. It's one of the few children's outfits that doesn't have decorations already on it, just pink thread used to sew on the buttons.
This is what it looks like with the tatting added.
I'm trying Bo-Nash
to attach the tatting to the dress. I ordered some a while ago but never tried it until today. I'm not sure if I like it yet, maybe because I'm not using it correctly. But if it holds the tatting in place long enough so I can sew it down it's still a good thing. Trying to keep tatting in just the right place while sewing it down has always been a problem of mine.
I can't wait to see what my granddaughter looks like in this!
As I mentioned, we spent the weekend in Kansas City, Missouri, close to Country Club Plaza
. This place has fountains everywhere! As is usual for me when we travel I just had to have a picture of me tatting with one of our destinations in the background.
This is one of the fountains on Nichols Road. The architecture of the entire Plaza is based on Seville, Spain. It's a pretty cool place to visit, but if you want to buy anything bring lots of money. This place has very high-end stores!
We had a wonderful weekend with the family! Of course I spent too much money on the grandkids, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Too bad we have to go back to work today.
