Ever since my dream Sunday night about an elephant tatting shuttle, I’ve been obsessed with relearning tatting. After practicing and playing around for a couple of days, I decided that I needed to make a tatted elephant and that it needed to look like the elephant in my dream. Always up for a challenge, I designed something not too difficult and jumped right in. It’s not at all perfect and it kind of looks like a pig as much as an elephant, but here it is.
There are several design flaws that could be improved if I were to make another. Since I hope to use it in my dream art journal, I really ought to do it. With more practice, my tatting will improved and my stitches should be more consistent. A second one should be a lot quicker to make than this first one did, too.
