Diane's Dare

     Diane (Lace-Lovin' Librarian) dared us to tat around these, little doodads (which she supplied, mine was about 5/8").  You could use someone else's pattern or design your own pattern. 



     My pattern, started out to be a motif for another shirt.  I had three rows designed and started tatting.  By the time I finished the second row, I liked it so much, I wanted to leave it for a pair of earrings.  The finished earrings are 1 3/4", plus the ear wire (not shown, the ear wire goes on the top picot.  I use changeable ear wires so I can use one pair of ear wires for all of my tatted earrings.).  The earrings were tatted with Lizbeth, size 20, in Vineyard Harvest.


     Now, to give back.  Here is my pattern.  Enjoy!!!!

  10. Looking at the 25-Motif Challenge reminded me that I hadn't commented on these beautiful earrings when I first saw them. Love the thread color, as Vintage Harvest is a favorite. Thanks so much for the pattern!
