You Can Make This

SarahEliz888 made Chinese Coin Bookmark (Tatting) with:

  • Oliver Twists Machine Thread- this is 100% cotton machine quilting thread that is hand-dyed in the UK by Jean Oliver. According to this website (http://www.ds9designs.com/t_olivertwists.shtml)
  • it is comparable to size 80 to 100 cordonnet thread. I'm not sure which color this is
  • but I used two strands of the thread to make this bookmark.

Q&A with SarahEliz888

Marilee Rockley asked:
This is lovely. The color is sort of heathered, too, from the 2 hand dyed threads. I'm wondering if you had any tension problems from working with the 2 threads as one? It sure looks perfect!
SarahEliz888 answered:
Thanks! I actually didn't have too much trouble with the tension, but I did wind them pretty carefully to start off with. I do love how the colors turned out though!
