In the making of the pin cushions, I have thought to use different heart patterns this this is Sadies Heart and found here Dusenbury, TATTING-SADIES-HEART-PATTERN .
I wanted to make other flowers along with the African Violet for a bouquet effect.
First a ring of 1 double stitch and two with beads double stitch and close ring. I make french knot with the shuttle 10 half stitches making 6 total in a row. Directions for the Josephine knot I have given here
|I thought I would make a cluster of flowers in the middle, even though I really did not want to cover the pretty tatting|
|So here we are, the tiny red buds are just two french knots in tatting, then I placed two of them in the little bouquet|
Now to make the rest of the pin cushion!
