Tatting with Buttons

Saw these on the internet and decided to make some of my own.

Same holes, different shapes

Just different colored thread.

Designed this one myself.

This one is the fist one I designed myself.

This bookmark was fun to make.

This was my first one like this.

Smaller button in this one.

These red hearts were actually my first attempt at this.

I was really having fun with using buttons.

by Rosemarie Peel

One of my latest tatting projects. 
Each one was given its own name.











Tatted pieces from different sources and designers.


Maple Leaf

The pattern is by Tammy Rodgers.
I used HDT size 20 called Forest from Yarnplayer. 

Canadian Maple Leaf

Designed by Gale Marshall in 2002.
 HDT from Yarnplayer size 20 called Knitty Gritty.


Maple Leaf

This time I used HDT size 40 thread called Sugar Maple.
I thought that if I used a thicker thread it would show up better in my window.

I used Altin Basak size 50 in white/silver metallic
and then again in the gold/metallic



Celtic Snowflake

September 2009 issue.





Adapted and worked by Helen Bailey from a circular motif by Sue Hanson




Pattern is from "LEARN TO TAT" by Janette Baker.  This was a good book that came with an DVD. 



Dimpled Ring Bookmark (08)

Book mark made from "Tatted Dimpled Rings" by Joy Botchlet.
I am going to weave a ribbon through the center to make it look straighter.
Very difficult to keep straight.  (2008)




This piece is hanging on the glass in a china cabinet.

I did this one a long time ago and found it in my storage  box.  A little bit too flimsy for me.   This is tatted on a bone ring.  Internet instructions. (2008)










This was designed by Julie Patterson in 2004.
I used DMC Cebelia 30 thread.








Looks very nice on my tree at Christmas.
I have made many and given them away as gifts.

I sent one of these to a friend of mine in Denmark
and have made many more of them since.
I have even put them in Christmas Cards.

This was originally made with picots around the outside, but someone wanted it plainer,
so I just left them off.
