Greeting Card Idea


Scans of some of my favorite pieces of tatting (especially my own designs) are sometimes used as the artwork on my own greeting cards. I use a computer program to add text like "Happy Birthday", "Happy Anniversary" (that one used to have a scan of a bobbin lace bell), etc. When I'm ready to use the cards, I can add some tatted flowers, a tatted cap, a balloon sticker, etc, to personalize the card and it is ready to go. A search of my card collection turned up one teddy bear birthday card. It is obviously time to make some more cards.

Hi,

I enjoyed browsing your blog. Your Teddy Bear Card is very nice. I don't think I have every seen this cute little teddy bear before? Can you tell me where the pattern is from or did you design him? I also like your dancing flowers, very pretty!

Thanks to all three of you for the kind comments. Carol, I designed the teddy bear several years ago in response to a challenge that Dianna Stevens issued to the Tat Chat email group. It is rather complicated to tat with several joins that have to be held with a paper clip until you are ready to connect. The pattern is still in rough draft format and I've never shared it. The dancing flower pattern is available in the Tat Calendar (see my links).
