Sequin pattern ready for tatting!!!


Finally I've got it sorted!!! There are three versions to this pattern as you've probably realised!!! 

There's the simple one with just double picots, another with a simple long beaded picot and the third has two long beaded picots which interlink. There's a page here which will explain this better if you get stuck!!!

Now there is something interesting about this little motif which I'm quite pleased with. 

I've used two beads in each one placing them 'back to back'. These sequins have two holes in them (which you'll need for the pattern) BUT if you've only got one hole at the edge it's really easy to 'poke' another hole opposite with a pin or needle!! I've tried it!!!

Ah! BC3 is being clever! I never would have thought of piercing my own hole! I still haven't found my sequins, probably because I haven't spent much time looking! Thanks for the new pattern(s), Jane!

Oh, such a fun idea! I think I have some sequins that were a gift from friends. I never knew what to do with them, but this is a great pattern to use them in. Thank you!

Thanks folks.
I guess piercing sequins is less painful than piercing ears, Diane!!!
I’ve been through the sequin ‘phase’ before, Marilee and I think there are a few patterns on my site but this is the best so far as it’s so versatile.

I had trouble commenting yesterday, my comment wouldn't publish. I've had that quite a bit lately. Can't remember what I was going to say, but thanks for the pattern!
