I was so excited and wanted to add beads to this bird, I think I invented a new technique.
|Wanting to tat Jane's Peacock found here click on Jane Eborall's Tatted Animals Page it was so small and cute, and really wanted to add a bead to center, for the eye in the feather!|
Instructions as follows, find your center picot (I added extra picot to pattern for center one) or double stitch, and with bead on crochet hook add a bead to the chain shuttle thread that you normally leave,
while making the ring, and pull out enough thread to make loop large enough to pass shuttle through
|continue on with ring and close and tighten up the chain thread :)|
|By the way this is Marilee's thread color parakeet size 40 click here to go to her blog and then her Etsy shop.|
I rushed making the pattern and changing it messed it up a bit. But I love it and sewed it down to felt added a little bit of embroidery.
