Oooooh, I can hardly wait to see!
Oooh can't wait to see! Your stitches are so neat and shiny. (:
A 3-D piece of tatting???? :)
This looks like it might be a 3-D egg! When I tatted my 3-D eggs back in 1992, I did them in two sections and connected them together after each half was stiffened over an egg form. I knew that crocheters used balloons to shape their 3-D crochet items but haven't tried it yet, although I did recently buy some balloons! I've never seen a balloon pump before (other than those commercial ones at the stores), but realize that this 'mechanical' version could be the easiest way to blow up the balloon!!! I look forward to your post tomorrow!
are you tatting up a hot air balloon? and the balloon will help shape the tatting?
Some great ideas. You will see soon what I created :) I have the balloon pump because I do a bit of balloon art (usually animals), but always because I cannot blow up a balloon at all.
I remember papier mache on a balloon. Are you tatting mache? This will be interesting.
