Tatted Fall Leaf Pillow!!




The fall leaf on this pillow was made by Dove Country tatting. I would really love to tat. I did get a DVD to try and teach myself, now if only I could find the time to learn. I wanted to learn how to tat after my grandmother talked about her mother trying to teach her to tat when she was a little girl and she could never get the hang of it. My grandmother said crocheting was her calling not tatting. So it got stuck in my head as one of those things I should try to learn. 

So I saw these beautiful leaves by Dove Country and had to get them and decided to make a pillow using one!! I really like how it came out!!

That's beautiful, Cherry. Like you I'd like to learn how to tat - I've tried but I must miss something.

Lovely pillow with such a beautiful tatted leaf. I have tried over the years to learn to tat with no good outcomes. If only I had paid attention to Grandma and her friends. Creative Bliss...
