Key To My Heart

I really doesn't take long, like tatting around button.
                              

 This size 40 thread.
 I did crochet stitch around the edge of the keys by starting with a slipknot and pulled thread from the front and then the back and pulled through the slip knot and continue around.  I did not count I just pushed and squashed the thread, so very little metal shows.
This also can be done with a shuttle too,  I just saved winding around the shuttle time.
This is size 80 thread this key is slightly smaller too.

I ordered the keys in bulk they are fun like buttons to tat around.
these two are size 40.

The little button will be attached to a necklace found wonderful little tassels
at Hobby Lobby too. 

I just directly tatted around this one key. stopped and went back to other side.

  6. My, my, my, gorgeous tatting on such lovely keys. Great way to identify the keys if you are using them, otherwise they make beautiful pendants too. Just read your plans for them. Wonderful ideas! Tatted buttons with tassels -another great idea.
