Tatted Bookmarks


Hi

Today I thought I would show you some of my latest tatting projects,

These tatted bookmarks are flowers, sewn onto wide ribbon with a piece of card at the back to hide the stitches and then laminated with the corners rounded off.



The red bookmark has a trail of green chains and rings to represent leaves and red daisy like flowers. there was also some separate red flowers and gold beads in the middle when sewn on the ribbon

There is also a red butterfly, my own design of one large ring and and one small ring put together.
These yellow flowers were a chain of large loops then as the chain grew the loops get smaller and smaller. then when sewn onto the ribbon they are sewn with the large loops at the bottom and then the smaller loops are put in a round and keep going round, making a chrysanthemum
Plus chains in green with green rings representing leaves and yellow rings for buds. plus large green rings for large leaves all sewn onto the ribbon.
They are fiddly but when finished they are unusual and although I say it myself something different on my craft table.
I hope you found this interesting many thanks for coming and visiting my blog and I look forward to you visiting it again.
Until next time, take care
Hugs Margaret
