A teeny tiny snowflake pattern!


I've got a lot of Bob-eez (they seem to have many spellings!) with small amounts of HDT on them. I really, really need to free these up so I can wind on other new skeins of HDT that I've been given or bought over the past two trips abroad!!!! 

So, what to do with them? Well I decided to make this little star in my doodles section to put in my 'carry about with me' container which is always in my handbag.  Normally I carry two shuttles, loads of bobbins full of thread and make the little SCMR butterflies which fly out every time I tat in a public place.  Not that I do that a lot!!!

Then BC3 reminded me that it's almost the festive season!!!!  

Anyway - I realised that if I changed the little star slightly it would turn into a snowflake!!!   So, here it is OR here they are!!!  I can make these very quickly and will continue to bore you with them until I've released a few more Bob-eez!!!

    This will become a new favourite like your teeny tiny SCMR butterfly which I love so much.

  6. Love it! We have a tiny tree that we set up on the kitchen counter. It is hard to find tiny tats to go on it. This one is perfect.

    Oh, this is perfect! Just the thing for using up those last bits of thread cluttering up countless shuttles and E-Z Bobs....and wound around empty cardboard/plastic thread cores. Add a thin metallic thread for a little extra 'sparkle,' and you've got a pretty little snowflake people will LOVE to take home with them as a reminder of their meeting (and their enthusiastic little chat about 'tatting') with the person in the doctor's waiting room....or in the library....or in the park....or.... :-D Great way to catch the interest of a possible 'convert' to tatting, also! Thanks, Jane!
