Edgings and Ideas

I’ve been trying to organize pictures on my computer and found a couple of edgings that I really enjoyed doing. They were added to the bottom of magnet boards I made for friends’ birthdays.

One friend does Renaissance Festivals and at first I didn’t quite know what I would use as background. Then I found some wonderful dragon and castle material. This is one time I actually used beads and then added dragonfly and “gem” magnets.

The other one is really into elephants. Material with elephants, the one’s I found anyway, were rather dark. So I used material with bamboo plants on it so she could see her elephant magnets. The edging was in gold. I think the green really set it off well.

Both recipients were happy with their gifts. And I had a lot of fun coming up with edgings that looked good with the material.

I have been getting a lot of ideas lately seeing all the great things other people have been doing on eTatters and their blogs. The problem is there is so little time to try them out! Christmas is coming so I do have that excuse to sit down and tat because of needing gifts. Now, if I could just stay home from work I’d have a lot more time for the important things.

  1. Yes, that’s what I did. They were a little heavy and my husband filed the edges and rounded the corners so they weren’t sharp. I used a 1/2″ dowel rod to hang them. I had tatting along the rod pocket at the top of both but they looked much better in person than in pictures.

  2. Your magnet boards are such a great idea. I love your idea and the materials you used also. The edgings are fantatic! I especially like the yellow one on the bamboo material. Can you tell me where to find the edging or is it your design? I also wanted to ask you where I could find the edging that is at the top of your blog, by Wanda’s Knotty Thoughts. It is also very unique. I don’t think I have ever seen your blog before, so I need to explore more of it. Your fall bookmark is a very nice design along with the small tree pattern. I will print them off and give them a try. Thank you for sharing your patterns. Now I will go explore the rest of your blog. Have a great day!

  3. Thanks Carol for stopping by. I’m glad you like my edgings. The only things I’ve posted that are not my designs are the Celtic tatting and the Colonial Lady. Let me know how the patterns work, they’ve not been proofed except by me. If you have any questions about them email me at tattrldy@gmailcom. Have a wonderful day!
