Flower Garden Tatted Bookmark

Down the Garden Path tatted bookmark.

I finally finished the Down the Garden Path tatted bookmark last night — except for working in the ends.

I wanted the greenery to look very lacy and ferny, so I made giant picots.  I like it–but the size of the picots may have made it look more weedy than ferny!  🙂

I’ll work in the ends this evening.

The pattern is from the book Tatting Treats Three.  I found it online several places, but since I love Handy Hands Tatting, here is a link to it at that site.

The pattern also includes a diagram for a corner, so you can use it as a flowery edging if you prefer.

I’m planning to get one of those nice matted picture frames from Hobby Lobby that has all the different sized openings for pictures in it and put several small, brightly colored tatted pieces in it for wall decor.  This is one of the items that I plan to include in it.

Tatting Pattern Source

I found the source of the flower bookmark pattern in my last post!

Rexie, (here’s her website) very graciously wrote me with answers to my questions.  The pattern is from the book Tatting Treats Three.  I found it online several places, but since I love Handy Hands Tatting, here is a link to it at that site.

I am ordering the book tonight.  It will be so good to be able to tat it legally!

If you missed my last post, here is the photo of the bookmark that Rexie tatted:

Thank you, Rexie!

 

P.S.:  I just ordered the book, along with some other stuff I HAD to have!  🙂
