The ShuttleSmith Leather Tatting Shuttle
The ShuttleSmith is living up to her pseudonym/name!!! 'Smith' is used to refer to someone who makes something. In my case this means SHUTTLES. (Sorry, I'm not referring to my Sterling Silver Tatting Shuttles now.)
My newest venture is making: LEATHER TATTING SHUTTLES
They are Flat Tatting Shuttles. Look closely in the picture to see the slits emanating from the cut-out holes, this is how the thread is wound on.
Right now I have one style of flat, leather shuttles: a decorative/colored leather bonded onto a stiffer, backing leather. (Another style/form is coming soon).
I currently have two sizes ranges:
- The basic shuttles are 3 to 3.24 inches long by 1 to 1 3/8 inches wide
- The 'smaller' shuttles are 2.5 to 2.75 inches long by 1 to 1 1/8 inches wide
I haven't figured out yet how to sell these yet on my website. All the color and size choices make the system fairly complex.
|Ths photo shows the front and the back side of the leather shuttles. I have spent time bevelling the edges of the backing leather for a smooth tool.|
|These are the colors of Leather Tatting Shuttles that I have available now. There is only one tan and one white shuttle at this time....but more white shuttles are possible|
