This was done in Victoria Clayton's hand-dyed silk perle, which sadly isn't available in a lot of colors any more.

Tattingchic  made some beautiful examples of this one!
 Tatskool made a whole bouquet of them!


  1. Thank you for sharing your pattern. Millie

  2. I just made a heart out of my earliest hand dyed threads. I just love the pattern - it is so easy to restart my tatting after two years lapse.
