Could you, Would you? Use a shuttle this small?

I was playing with clay today LOL 4 hours went by this morning before I knew it. My day went too fast :(
Anyways I had recently purchased some clay cutters they looked bigger online but ohhh well they are nice anyways... I seen this peticular shape and just tossed it aside not really tossed just put it with the others then I got to thinking ohhhh now neat would little itty bitty shuttles be? Pendants? Earrings? You know me when I get on to something It kind of snowballs LOL So I decided to go ahead and just do it so I did... This shuttle measures a whopping 7/8" that is seven eights inches its not a typo lol. I have a normal sized hand for a lady my ring finger is size 7 dont know if that helps with my hand size but any whoo I used this itty bitty shuttle and it took me a few stitches and it started to flow smoothly, I really like it and to tell the truth it felt more comfy in my hand than the normal sized ones...


I am looking for 4 lucky tatters to be the 1st to reply that will test these for me. I would like for you to test them as soon as you can so I know whether to put them in my shop or if you think they are too small...
Like I said it takes a little getting used to but once you get it I think its a nice little shuttle to tat with...

How adorable. I just couldn't use it because of my large hands - I'm sure they would just cramp up.

Hi Heather! Your tiny shuttle is so cute!! I have small hands, so it would be interesting to tat with a tiny shuttle. You come up with the neatest ideas!!

hi I really liked the shape & size of the shuttles, they're really great.I personally like to tat in small shuttles, the problem comes when you have to frequently add thread, but thats ok, but your shuttles are really great. luv edna.

That is a very small shuttle! I would think it would be good for very fine thread. How lucky for you that this shape was available! I'd be happy to test one for you!

Guess I'm too late to test it, but I can see how it would be good for making very small pieces. I tend to wind way too much thread on the shuttle for little things, because I think "That can't possibly be enough." Having an itty bitty little shuttle would keep me from doing that.
