The new project: a tatted fan

A new project on the horizon: a tatted fan!

eh yes, I was made to request a small size fan that can be easily carried in a handbag. (❁´▽`❁) What a good idea, isn't it?

Just the choice of the frame of the hand fan asked me some time. I finally found my happiness in Magalie Deboudard's store which sells many models for bobbin lace. I found a fan frame in pear tree 11,2 cm: it seemed to be the perfect size.

As this is not a decorative object and it will be used, I opted for a beaded silk cord Au Ver à Soie. Silk is much stronger than cotton, and this thread is not too thin.

Now, everything is to be! I have already drawn the first round that seems to give the expected result. But the adventure is just beginning with this fan. ♪♪v(⌒o⌒)v♪♪

  1. Good luck Lilas, imagine that I just discovered a great range but mount !!! And I was thinking how I could do for it folds ! For the small range of my book could not bend ! You must have seen at Georgia Seitz who did it to you “the tatting class online”. Good work.

  2. C’est une superbe idée : j’ai hâte de voir l’avancée. Et le splendide éventail d’Edwige Renaudin, est-ce qu’il se replie ? Je pense que c’est la finesse du fil et donc de la dentelle qui permet qu’il se replie : pas plus épais que les lames, isn't it ? Good work.

    1. J’imagine que celui d’Edwige se plie. Je dois trouver un compromis entre finesse et solidité. Maintenant que je suis un peu plus avancée, je dois dire que j’ai des doutes sur mon choix
