Button Heart #2 in Easter Egg HDT

 


I tatted Susan's button heart again - properly this time. I used Lady Shuttle Maker's Easter Egg HDT again with another of my grandmother's buttons. This one is a pretty lilac color that is irridescent. The scans of the tatting with buttons haven't been good, so I used the camera for this one. I wish there was some way I could make the bottons show up better. Oh well. You get the general idea.

This is a great pattern that I think would be good for beginner's who want a little more challenge.

The thread suits the pattern well, it does look Easter Eggish, don't know why.
Tatted perfectly too.

It looks great! What a wonderful way to use up your Grandmother's buttons. I have a jar of old buttons that belonged to my Mother....hmmmmmm.....

Very pretty! You are so lucky to have heirloom buttons to match with your HDT. Come to think of it, I have quite a few buttons too... just not from my grandmother!

Very easter-looking indeed! Now, I'm working with sequins, but they may be interchangable with buttons if we can get the sizes.

The button is a perfect match to the thread and your tatting is perfect.

The thread really compliments the button. Good choice!
