I finally got around to framing the pair of ballerinas I tatted. This is a pattern by the very talented Jane Eborall.
You can get to all her wonderful patterns by clicking on her name. I tatted these ballerina's for my daughter, Katrina. She painted the frame to match the colors in her room. My friend, Rayanna, got me into scrapbooking and I used these tools to make the mats for framing the ballerinas. I am very pleased how this turned out. I like the punch I used for the border, it has a look of lace to it. I showed my friends daughter, April, who is 7 years old, the ballerina's and she liked them. She is taking ballet and tap. So I just finished making a pair of ballerinas for April and will give them to her after her recital.
I hope to post another picture tomorrow. In an earlier entry, I show a picture of a heart that I tatted for myself. I finished framing it and I used my scrapbooking punches and cutters and card stock too.
Next I will be tatting a little teddy bear from Patti Duff''s Mini Tat's Book.
