Googly-eyed Owl

Whoo knows where your shuttles (or needles) are?  This owl is a fun project with a nest full of tatting tricks.  Learning to encase "eyes" in tatted rings, cluny beak, SCMR, and direct pearl tatting - after all that the rest is easy.  Students should bring 2 shuttles or 2 tatting needles (same size), 2 bird color- and 1 beak color- balls of size 20 tatting thread, and usual tatting supplies.  Kaye will share her lifetime supply of googly eyes.

 

This project is for both shuttle and needle tatters.
