These are a few motifs I tatted to practice and to use up my stash. I originally posted the pictures here http://www.intatters.com/album.php?albumid=2006
They have been done with a shuttle but I see no reason why they shouldn't be needle tatted.
I used finca no.5 variegated thread for these, the pattern for the heart can be found here
and the butterflies here
the flowers I sort of made up myself and I have been asked for a pattern which I'll post separately.
