Tatted Lace on Key With Tassel Fob ❤๐Ÿ—❤

Playing with purples maybe this is the "Sugar Plum Fairy's key" 

This is out of order again, but I purchased many tassels in this color and it seems to work with the lizbeth colors but too long.

Rings and chains with beads matching the key.

And of course I trimmed the tassel too.

Also for extra flare I went back around cause I live to overdo everything
This key opens pop bottles just FYI
Don't forget to take time for yourself

Tat's Amore

I love how this came out and the little satin bow pulls it all together ๐Ÿ’

Once again I am struggling posting the corect order but a good point for newbies is to remember to fold tatting so you can have access to picots.

And then I went and forgot to attach an important part so I just whipped stitched it together the same way I cover my ends, its pretty invisible.

I just love how Martha placed the victorian sets for the streight stem in the middle๐Ÿฅฐ

I did forget to take pictures of last pretty yellow flowers.  But hopefully you get the idea.
This pattern wasn't easy (partially because I chose size 80 thread) but taking breaks
Have fun tatting everyday if you can๐Ÿ’
