Wednesday's WIP done

Motif #20 in 2nd 25 Motif Challenge of 2016
10 cm x 6 cm in size 20 Flora 
the little flower is my own addition

I'm determined to finish up some of my smaller Works In Progress in order to empty some shuttles. I have no idea how many summers ago I started this one by Nancy Tracy, but it wasn't this past summer. Isn't it a cute idea! You should visit Nancy's webpage and check out the links to the patterns she makes available for free use. It was my enjoyment in tatting many of those patterns that inspired me to purchase this book.  

I apologize it took me so long to get this posted. There was one day to finish the tatting and block it, a second to combine the parts and photograph, and then a third for photo editing and blogging. Whew! :D

This is so cute and pretty ! Love your little floral enhancement.
Could the pattern be enlarged into a tatted slipper or baby booties ?

Eliz Davis aka Tatknot said...

Thanks, all.

What a great idea, muskaan! If you are still thinking a kind of flip flop for the baby's feet, you could probably lace ribbons through it to anchor ir around the baby's ankles. I think it will need to be downsized rather than enlarged, but that could be done by experimenting with thread sizes. I'm sure Nancy would love to see them modeled on some little one's feet if you give it a try.
