About This Class
Learn how to Tat a Petals Button ephemera element to use in your mixed media projects, or as an accessory.
Although this class is a needle tatting class, all patterns can be tattled with a shuttle. We'll start with a review of supplies, learn how to understand Tatting patterns then work a simple project that will help new Tatters understand and work the two stitches we will use in our ephemera project.
We will finish with our last lesson: What's Next? showing examples you will be able to create after completing the Petals Button.

I love creating art from the first time I made clothes and changed the makeup on my #1 brunette Barbie all the way through to today, creating embellishments for journals.
I think I've done every craft in one way or the other. Usually the other! As an MIS I didn't have time for my arts, but I always felt my job afforded me an art outlet, just a different way than most think of it.
Back in the 90's I was able to get back to my art and taught watercolor painting on fabric. It was all the craze and so much fun. Some students had never painted before and would just stare at the white of the fabric. After 15 minutes or so I would just plop some paint on their fabric and give it a spray of water and put the brush in their hand. They took off from there with a smile. Sometimes we all need a little nudge, don't we?
Today I share mixed media projects like making embellishments, recycling boxes into journals that can be mailed flat and then popped open when they arrive, needle Tatting, which is not a lost art, and bits and pieces of mixed media assemblages.
