Little Queen Bee Upcycled Wood Tatting Shuttle

Sometime back we fitted new wooden blinds in our house and we ended up with slats left over. Since we often like to “re-purpose” things we find, Dave made some lightweight tatting shuttles out of the extra blinds.

This shuttle is 3 1/4 inches long by 1 1/8 inch wide and 1/8 inch thick, and has been adorned with a "Little Queen Bee" using pyrography (burn etching). This tatting shuttle has been initialed and dated by Dave, the maker. Beeswax was used to finish this shuttle.

This "Little Queen Bee" tatting shuttle is currently for sale in our Grizzly Mountain Arts Etsy shop.
