New and improved

If you've been reading my blog, you know that I was not happy with the way my first Cubs Spinning Wheel turned out.

I'm much happier with this one! As I mentioned previously, it did mean that I had to use the shoelace trick after almost every ring and chain. It was worth the extra time and effort.

It might be difficult to see the differences between the two from a picture, but if you were looking at the two side by side, you would be able to easily tell which is the better Spinning Wheel.

I've been given a couple of other ideas that I'd like to try out. Eliz suggested using split rings for the center and then tatting the spokes in the normal way. If I ever manage to get those split rings going, I think it will work well. Muskaan suggested mock rings, something I never would have thought of doing. It's been a while since I've practiced mock rings, so I guess that's another technique I need to work on.


  1. It's beautiful this way seems very fine, love it💟

  2. Oh I like the way this one turned out. Smart use of SLT.

  3. Lovely and sounds like you have several options to try. You may just have an entire set to match the number of players on the Cub's Baseball team. LOL

  4. Both versions look great to me, but it seems like a simple solution would be to use a double bobbin shuttle, with one bobbin wound in blue and one in red. That would let you switch the colours out when needed without having to resort to split rings or SLT.

    1. I never even thought about using a double bobbin shuttle. Thanks for the idea!


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
