Tatted Heart #2 for the Round Robin

This pattern is by Sharon B. Taliaferro. I printed it from the Tatting Pattern Calendar February 20, 2007. I tatted it with DMC #8 Perle Cotton in off white with a tortoise shell finish button. The pattern called for #12 perle cotton and a 5/8" button. Since I was using #8 to make it bigger, I used a button that's a little over 1". She said she wanted neutrals so I hope this is a good choice.

This was a lot of fun to tat if anyone hasn't tried it and wants to. It tats up fast and is very simple and straight forward. Once you get started, it could be one of those "auto pilot" projects.

I hope the recipient will be pleased!

What a beautiful heart. Simple yet elegant. I am sure the recipient will be very happy. The tatting looks very good also you can tell it was made with love.

Thank you Madeline and Clyde. I think it is a pretty pattern and I did enjoy making it for someone else.

Very Pretty! I'd never have thought to tat around a button, I'm going to have to give that a try.

Thank you Diane and Bonnie. I made a typo. It was supposed to say #12 Perle Cotton not #1.
