I embarked on a new challenge: reduce the size of my tatting … make mini tatting with Sajou thread ! (☆ ☆ ^ ー ^)
I have long thought that I could try as a thread, thinner than the DMC cordonnet # 100. I came to want to try the thread “fil à gant” of Sajou. It is presented as a 120-size thread, but I must say that the difference in size with the DMC cordonnet # 100 is very important.
After the surprise of the size of the thread, I was reassured by its strength: the “fil à gant” is very thin, however, we can shoot enough to make shuttle tatting.
Second concern, how to finish? My needle ball point seemed too big, and finishing tests with a miracle thread have failed. I finally found a pearl sewing needle that suits.
I still need to practice a little before getting a nice result with this thread. But I hope to make it happen.
And then, it reactivated my desire to make a nice fan. I tell myself that with this kind of thread I will not have any problem with the closing of the fan. So, I have took the pattern of the great fan I had bought, and I have only to think. (● ^ٹ^)
