DooDads

Lace-lovin Librarian held a give away of DooDads, well I just had to join in.
 Diane sent two Doodads. I started with this pencil drawing and turned it into the try out below.
 From this I got these ear rings, I used Altin basak in this colour to go with my new dress,go's well I think. Have done picture below so you can see the tatting easyer.

  1. Do you know - in all the years of using doodads I've never thought of only tatting on part of them!! VERY pretty design.

  2. this is so stunning, just like jane said - i'd never think about tatting only around half of it!!!
    and the colour matches perfectly :)

  3. Hey, Jane took my comment! I really like the look of the tatting around just part of the doodad. I think it allows you to appreciate both the tatting and the doodad more. I'll have to give that a try soon.
