A Little Tatting and lots of Beading :)

Ready for Spring

This is my second attempt at the running bunny.

This was the first, I may make a third not sure like all of one :)

Many bloggers have done this one, but this was my first one.
I did add Marilee Rockley's add a bead instructions, and maybe a larger bead might have been better!
pattern below.

Got direction on Instagram she hand drew out instructions.

This method is also mentioned in the French tatting book that was more difficult to understand.

She added a paper clip here , which I did, then took it off after going half way round and replacing the pin to the bead thread and original beginning place.

  3. Sweet bunnies! But now: beading with tatting... together, not tatting and beading separately ;-)

  5. Lovely bunnies! I LOVE the tatting too. You said many bloggers have done this pattern but I wasn't even aware that it existed!!!! So thanks for opening my eyes, I'll grab my thread in a minute and give it a try. About the French book, could you please tell me which one it is? I have dozens of books but a good other one wouldn't hurt, right?
    Besides, was it the French or the method in the book that was difficult to understand? If it's the French, I'd be happy to help :)

    1. Thank You on the rabbits, the french book is called La Frivolite, by Edwige Renandin, I shouldn't have acted that disappointed I don't speak french, just saw more with this drawing than with the pictures in the book. I paid a pretty penny for the book and should have know it was more of a how too with basics than something new and different. Lots of the jewelry tatted bloggers seem to have done this 3d type of flower, so I figured I was the last one to try it cause I only dabble in jewelry tatting very little :)

    2. A friend of mine has the book so I had a look. I agree with you, the drawing was very helpful, even to me, because I'm a needle tatter and I'm not fond of the jargon used in that particular book. Most modern patterns are simpler. Anyway, my bracelet is now almost finished and I can't wait to wear it, it's lovely (used Lizbeth #155, size 30 thread).

    3. Oh wow, you have to work hard transferring many patterns over to needle! I hope you are able to post a picture of it :) if you want you can sent me a picture and I'll post it or tell me what colors you used.

  6. Lovely bunnies hopping around :-) I think the 2nd one has a lot of character & expression & body language...
    I made a very similar 2-layered flower but it was Jennifer Williams (cariad) pattern, which I turned into a rakhi bracelet ;-)
