How to make acute angle in chain, or hearts are never too many.
Hello everyone! Thanks for the support of my blog and new subscribers!
I often ask you to write in the comments what you would like to learn new about tatting. This helps me a lot when looking for topics for the next post. Because when I answer your question, I firmly believe that this topic excites you. Here’s one new question from my customer: how to make acute angle in tatting. And as usual, I made a video for three tatting methods: shuttle, needle and hook. Watch my video and come back.(I hope you will continue reading until the end!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Z4e9CiW4uY&list=UU3dn4_9pp7tIKA2k564wLBQ&index=1
Why do you need acute corner in lace? Oh, I can talk for hours about new methods, new shapes, new tools! Yes, I love to learn new things. And you? Classic tatting patterns of rings and arcs are beautiful (almost always). I agree, of course. But sometimes there is a need for stylization. For example, if I am making a heart pattern, I cannot do without a sharp corner. Otherwise, the pattern will not be perfect.
I have created a collection of hearts. And in my opinion, these hearts look pretty cute 🙂
There is no limit to perfection, or tatting design change.
Hello everyone! Today I want to tell you about my new experiment. I have already created designs with a “wicker” middle. But usually this middle appeared at the very beginning of the idea. For example, these are “Wheel of Fortune” doilies or three snowflakes. You can see this in my store.
Sometimes I do things that I don’t really like. But I cannot think of what needs to be changed. In this case, I put off such a product until the “brilliant idea comes”! ha ha. Such a product can wait a long time for its time. It happened so with this cute Kosmeya jewelry set. By the way, Kosmeya is the name of very delicate flowers with a light aroma. It seems to me that the set is very similar to these flowers. Do you agree?
Of course, I could add a yellow center, because “there is no limit to perfection”! But I chose silk embroidery threads just to match the set. But the embroidery threads are polyester, so the middle shines slightly and gives a special charm to the product. This is exactly the perfect solution that I was looking for! Look at both options. I bet you will notice the difference!
I will briefly describe how I filled in the middle. First, I used the needles on a foam pillow to fix the product. Then, with the help of a needle, I “wove a basket” in the very center. It looks something like the photo. But you can find a detailed description in my pattern for snowflakes with a braided middle.

The torment of creativity, or pursuit of excellence.
Hello everyone! Today my post will consist of two questions. I really need your answers and advice.
I’m a perfectionist, alas. This trait of my character relates primarily to creativity. I already wrote about my firm conviction that tatting is creativity. Do you remember? Yes, and therefore, when creating new tatting patterns, I can redo the product several times. I am constantly striving to make the “perfect product”. But as we know, tastes differ! It is also quite possible that I am too demanding of myself. I have already made several variants of new earrings. Oh, you have no idea how much time and thread I ruined (so it seems to me).
I finally decided to leave the two most suitable options. But I don’t really like both of them, alas. And now I think I need to do the third option. What do you think is wrong with these earrings? Help, help, help please! I need any of your advice!
This was the first question. To make it easier for you to read, I “screwed an automatic translator” to my site. Have you noticed? It’s a button at the top of every page. So, and now my second question. Does automatic translation work correctly? Is your language in the dropdown? Add me some more languages? It turned out not one, but three whole questions, ha ha! But I hope it doesn’t scare you!
Hello everyone! The new year 2021 has come! I want to congratulate all of you on this long-awaited holiday! May this year bring health, happiness, peace and prosperity to all of us. Love and kindness!
I thank all of you for your support and kind words! Believe me, this is very valuable for every master. Your feedbacks helps me feel needed and talented. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This is our Christmas tree with my husband. We always try to combine old rare toys with new ones. Our Ded Moroz (Santa Claus) is 65 years old this year. Wow, this is a family heirloom! I am making some new Christmas tree decor myself. There are simply tatting, there are also tatting snowflakes in the resin. What are your family heirloom New Year? Perhaps you have interesting family traditions. Write in the comments, please. It is very interesting.
And, as always, I have a lot of new ideas. New year, new plans, new lace! The new project has already started. And I plan to finish the two designs I started (jewelry box and new earrings) in January. Therefore, subscribe to my blog, write your tips and questions in the comments. I’ll be happy to answer and help, as always! https://fairylace.kozinenko.com/blog/
