Wedding Crown

Lately I have been wanted to tat wedding stuff and I finished a crown and a flower basket. The basket is still wet from the starching but I can show you the crown.

The pattern is from "DMC Book of Charted Tatting Designs". The instructions ask for a #20 thread but I used #10 to make it bigger. Mom says that may be adding another motif will look better. I stiffened it with white glue/water mix and then sprayed with a fabric/floral hi gloss spray. I still need to give another coat of the spray to make it shine, but it looks pretty stiff now.

Because has been raining so much the things take a long time to dry. So the basket will come in a few days.

Also I'm looking for this book. It's listed on Amazon but for $12. If I do remember, this book was sold for around $4. If anyone knows where I can get a copy, even a used one, please e-mail me. I'll appreciate it!

I made the crown to have it in exhibit when I go to the artisan fairs. But if someone wanted I can make another in a jiffy. Took me only 3 days to tat and 3 days to stiff because of the rainy weather.
