Unfinished Tatting Knotting Shuttle


Here's another new handmade fiber art tool for our "Grizzly Mountain Cache" Etsy shop!

Dave made these wood knotting shuttles and left them unfinished so you can decorate them yourself! These large 5"x 1 5/8" knotting shuttles were used in the Victorian era to make strands of knotted rope that would then be sewn onto embroidery pieces. They were such a status symbol that the ladies would carry them around as a fashion accessory!
