Two Hearts One Pattern

I've been working on a cluny heart pattern and realize not everyone is thrilled about cluny weaving. So you could decide to substitute two split-rings if you like.
This is close up of some work done.
When making split rings and using variegated thread,  keep in mind where one side mixes with another there will be two colors that show like picture below.
 This can be avoided by adding third shuttle which I have not done yet on any of these.

The little purple heart is done in size 40 the others are all size 20 with exception of the white trimmed heart the inside is an odd out of production color and size I can not remember.
If you are interested in the directions e-mail me and I will send you this PDF file free or If you need a hard copy I can send you one for cost of postage and paper.

  1. Wow, that's a very complex pattern! Very pretty!

    I have (or used to have) some of that same unknown variegated thread. I believe it was Manuela. It must still be around here somewhere, but I haven't seen it in a while.

  3. I like your idea of using split rings instead of Clunies. I think Clunies are pretty, but they're not something I'm really interested in spending time on learning at this time. I would love to have a copy of this pattern!

  6. OOooh, pretty hearts! And I am so jealous that you can make such wonderful clunies. I can embroider them, but I haven't been able to needle tat them.

  8. I do the clunies differently than others, I have a video on them I am under the Madtatter80 channel on youtube. Its not as hard on the hands as the other way. The video has dragonfly's in it.

  9. I would like the pattern for your pretty heart, could you e-mail it to me at ikorro@vodamail.co.za? Thanks. I plan to re-visit clunies when I've finished my 25 motif challenge. Then I'll have a look at your method of doing them too.

  15. Dear Carollyn,
    The way you made these hearts reflects the great love that fills your own!

    Nevertheless the Cluny you made that I love most is the one with the dragonfly. I enjoy the critter, but also the medaillon you tatted around it in pure Art Nouveau style.

    You are an artiste!

  16. Thank you, I never realize that it was a Nouveau Art style till you mentioned it. You know I have a unique clip art book that is titled Art Nouveau and I love it, and my children have borrowed it for school to show art class. It is a favorite of mine and it must have been my subconscious coming out in the dragonfly tatting.
