I've got lots of tatting to share today!
Most of it was done in Lizbeth #121-Angel's Love, size 20.
|Three friends, three snowflakes.|
First was have the Two Colour Snowflake, by Anne Bruvold. This was my first time doing this pattern, and it was quite fun,
I made each with a different secondary color, with the main color being green so that they were kind of like wreaths.
I really liked how these turned out. Though I'm not sure which is my favorite...
I'm glad that my friends liked them.
|Three stars, three cousins.|
For my three cousins, the Star Bright pattern by Be-stitched. This one was fun to tat, but not also had some moments of minor annoyance.
The next group of snowflakes came from the book Tatted Snowflakes, by Vida Sunderman.
|Just give me a breeze, and I'll spin around!|
|Where is my wheel?|
The Spoke snowflake was quite easy for me.
|Pinwheel times two!|
Two pinwheels for a couple of my aunts I don't see very often.
|Just add glitter, and I will be perfect!|
This Glittering snowflake was for my niece. She liked it.
|I like trefoils a lot...|
This Trefoil snowflake was for my friend who taught me how to tat. Because she is awesome.
|I'm like a starfish!|
I actually altered the Daisy snowflake slightly in order to make this. I left out a petal. But I thing this looks nice as a star. It's for my father.
|My picots are nice and neat.|
The Lacy snowflake was for my grandmother and grandpa. But I also had two pennies to give my grandmother, so...
... I tatted them into a little box! That way, I could throw in my two cents. It made her happy, which makes me happy as well.
I made up the box pattern myself, using a little hat motif I made up a year or so ago as the base.
The next group came from the book Christmas Angels and Other Tatting Patterns, by Monica Hahn.
|I'm good timber!|
This Simple Christmas Tree pattern was for my bother-in-law. He's nice.
|I heard the bells...|
This Cloverleaf Bell was for my eldest sister. She's pretty cool.
I really like the Wheel of Nine Rings pattern. I've only done it twice, but it is one of my favorite patterns from this book. This was for my aunt.
|I'm pretty cool too!|
This was my first time making the Knobby snowflake, but it was really fun. This was for another aunt of mine.
|I ♥ tatting.|
The heart ring was for my mother. This was my first time tatting this pattern, and at times I found the large rings the make the hearts to be annoying to close.
|If you fold me just right, I can form wings!|
This one was actually a pattern for a butterfly. But I didn't really like how it looked folded as a butterfly, so I decided just to leave it flat. This is for my older sister!
This next one is a pattern I made up after failing to find a candy-cane pattern I liked.
|Don't I look tasty?|
It is simple, yet nice. This is for my other grandmother.
And last, but not least, we have these two snowflakes.
|We are small, but still good.|
The left one is from the Tatted Snowflakes book, while the right is a little altered version of the center of the Layered Tatted Snowflake pattern by Be-stitched.
It was a crazy run, but I enjoyed tatting all of these. Though next year, I'm not going to try not to wait until the last possible moment to start working on Christmas tatting.
Merry Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful day!
