Flowers and Leaves
I like Ninetta's idea of keeping handbag tatting small so that it doesn't have time to get dirty. So I thought I'd add a flower to a short length of leaf braid to make a bookmark. How to finish off the other end? I could add a tassel perhaps. But I decided to put a flower on both ends. The pattern is two layered flower from Cariad Tatting by Jennifer Williams. Both threads are Milford size 20. I'm working the leaf braid continuously, I just cut off a length and unraveled one split ring so that I had thread to sew on the flower.
