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.

    Very pretty! I like it just like it is!

  2. When it is finished, it won’t have those strings hanging out of each end. I meant to have it done last night, but have gotten busy tatting tiny flowers and such with the small bits of thread that is left on bobbins and shuttles so I can rewind them for another project.
