First Tatting Project

*Tatting is addictive...*

Well, I had attended two unofficial lessons from a friend... Finally I've completed this project:

covered openview

Look simple but took me few hours to complete. I've unpick, cut & redo many times in order to get it right... Phew, finally I've completed it... I'm quite happy, though not so perfect yet.

I've pasted the pattern on a plain jewelry box. Mmm, the simple pattern makes a lot of different on the plain box! The box looks rather elegant with the pattern & beads. Don't you think so?

Per-order method: need your opinions

I may make a few of these and sell it in my Etsy store. I may do something different this time by using pre-order method. Interested buyer will place order as in size and color of the box & the yarn color (base on the available sizes I have). I'm not sure this method will work, if you have opinion, please feel free to comment.

Jullie,
You are doing very well for a new "addict." I can promise you my first pieces looked nothing like this! The reason I don't do pre-orders is the pressure of producing exactly what the customer wants in a specific timeframe. If that doesn't bother you, go for it! I wish you much luck.

Hi Tattycat, thanks for your comment...
I hope I have customer order it from me... So, I will like to try this method to see whether it works.. I'm not sure about the costing though... Could you advise?

Jullie,
Your box is beautiful! Good luck with your Etsy shop! I agree with Tattycat... I would prefer to make items and sell them as is. People can be really funny about custom orders! I have a terrible time figuring out pricing, so I don't sell anything... I give it all away!

Hi Dianne,

Thanks for your compliment and your advise. Will consider seriously about it...

Why don't u sell it? I saw ur creations... Very very nice!! I love it... ;) If I have half ur skills, i think i'll be very happy...
