double frivolousness

That post is for you, Frivole!
In 2012 Yumatatter shared in a group her way to make a double tatting shuttle at home, I loved that idea so much that I tried to make one on my own, with what I had at home. So that's what I came to:
It was a fun, and it works too!!
Both photos were taken in 2012.

Ciao,

  1. Very cool! Thank you very much for showing me Ninetta. How do the bobbins hold in place please? I think I may have found a solution to my problem but yours is something to try too. :-)

    1. That was something I discovered in the process. I used those caps from forniture, similar to little top caps for BIC pens, but they have a texture that doesn't let the bobbin slide. Bobbins can be taken off and they keep in place with normal fingers' pressure.

    2. Ah, thank you! I need to go on the search… :-)

  2. That's interesting Ninetta. I've tatted with two aero shuttles side by side, but that's not very secure.

  3. Great solution !!! Will surely try this . In fact, I can make some of 'normal' size where sewing bobbins can be used. I have so many bobbins now, but a broken shuttle :-(
    Eyes in search of materials now ...... ;-P
    Thanks you :-)
