I finally got ribbon from my mom. I sat down with, stared at the colors and then came up with a plan. Wrote down a tatting pattern and I was utterly shocked when the written pattern actually worked! :-D Needs some tweaking, but this is as I wrote it, so I was happy. Then, I grabbed my handy-dandy dollar store sewing kit (which was purchased primarily for its needle threader that I broke already... go figure) and came up with how I wanted the ribbon. Here is the final product:
I'm going to block and stiffen the "flower" part later or tomorrow --As well as glue the knots a kit and cut off that extra string that I'm keeping for security. LOL. (I'm a little knot obsessed. I realize this). Oh! The end with the big flower also has a loop since, if I use it, I'd like it to hold a pen, I think. ;-)
So, not that anyone actually reads this, but, if you do; Any thoughts?
Not quite tatting!!
