A few weeks ago I had a request from Ruth in Canada for a jellyfish pattern. People ask for the strangest things, sometimes but this idea really appealed to me. I must have a very strange mind too, I suppose!!!
Ruth wanted this to be a brooch so one of the main considerations was 'how to hide the pin' that every brooch requires. I decided that the easiest way was to use block tatting for that part of the design.
Then there was the problem of 'what does a jellyfish look like'. Good old Google images helped (or rather hindered) that part of the design process. If you've got the time I suggest you google 'jellyfish' too and you'll find out how many 'sorts' there are. That's what caused a hinderance!!!
Making the body was relatively easy but then the problems started with the tentacles. You can see the problems with my first test tat below. How many and where should they be!!!
More tomorrow - along with the pattern!!!
