Decorate tatting shuttles with fabric

Here is a post from a fellow blogger on how to decorate tatting shuttles with fabric. I must do this. I have so much fabric that would look so cute as a shuttle.

Thanks for posting Marie.

Fabric Shuttles These are Boye shuttles I prettied up with left over fabric.


1.) Sand the shuttle lightly (roughen it up). If you fabric is too light and shuttle, too dark, paint white acrylic paint on top of the shuttle.
2.) Add decoupage to the top shuttle and back of fabric. Leave the fabric a little larger than the shuttle.
3. ) Once, dry, trim the fabric, next to the shuttle.
4.) Add another coat of decoupage to the top and side. Repeat one more time.
5.) Once dry add three coats of colorless fingernail polish. Allow the coats to dry, before adding the next coat.
