Emma: Petticoats

After a bit of  washing, pinning and ironing… Emma seems to have some petticoats.

I’m not sure if the outer rings of frilly, picot heavy tatting really do the inner rings with the hearts any good. I’m pretty sure there is too much red… but even in all white, with just red hearts… probably not. I’m going to try something else for the outer rings.

Even with only the hearts red… not sure I like the petticoats.

Yes, as you can see in this image, the hearts – which are supposed to be the focus – are overwhelmed by too much fluff on the outer rings.

My notebook to keep track of my original tatting designs. I sell my tatted lace and the patterns for my original designs on Etsy... oh, and my favourite recipes are here too!
