Denim Tatted Tote Bag

Denim tote bag decorated with tatting

Here’s another tote bag I finished for Christmas.  The tatted edging at the top is from a 1915 pattern that was reprinted in one of the Dover pattern books.

I am still having major problems tensioning my rings and chains evenly, and the work is not very good when viewed separately.  But it is the best I can do at this stage, and I do think the tote bag turned out cute.

I am now working on a canvas tote with brown and variegated spice colored thread.  I did one motif last night, and it turned out too uneven to use.  So I will start again tonight.

If tatting was easy, everyone would do it, so I keep telling myself to be patient with my mistakes.  🙂

    Nice, as usual. Is there anything you can’t do?
