Japanese Tatting?

The only English word on the front of the package is "Clover."

I received my order of two packages of 5 Clover tatting shuttles, and I was really tickled to find the packaging AND instructions written only in Japanese.

The only English words anywhere in the literature were “Clover” and “Made in Japan.”

I guess that really does prove that tatting is an internationally understood art form.

It does say "Made in Japan" in English. 🙂

And that I am easily amused.  🙂

Instructions are only in Japanese. The back is blank.

Beginner Shuttle Tatting Project

TA DAH!!!!!  My beginner shuttle tatted Christmas tree is completed.

I am so thrilled!  It’s far from perfect, but a few weeks ago I would have never dreamed that I would be able to shuttle tat at all!

I also got my order with Aero shuttles and bobbins and two SewMate shuttles to try today.  Needless to say, I am playing with my new toys tonight!

Oh, the red flowers are supposed to be poinsettias.  😀

Oops, I forgot to add that the Christmas tree pattern is a free pattern from be-stitched.com.
