This is my first attempt at making a tatting shuttle. I used polymer clay. Unfortunately my oven was too hot so it came out with bubbles all over the darn thing. The outside surface was sanded but left the very few bubbles inside. Then I painted a daisy on the top. Of course I enjoyed the painting part the best. Its been a long time since I have painted and it was very enjoyable. Next is to load it with some thread to put it to a tatting test. Lets hope this little shuttle is durable.
