Filigree Holly Bobbin Tatting Shuttle

For Dave, it's not just about MAKING a shuttle......its about CREATING a shuttle! He has carved this 2 3/8 inch lightweight bobbin shuttle out of Holly wood and burn etched the filigree design by hand. The end is inlayed with blue swirl celluloid. The bobbin is a common plastic Singer, available at any Wal-Mart and comes in a 4 pak. It has a #14 steel crochet hook inset in the nose. This tatting shuttle has been initialed and dated by Dave, the maker.
