My daughter was invited to a dress-up party for her little friend's birthday. The invitation referenced pretty little girls in dresses and pearls. So, what's a mother to do? In addition to her costume pearl necklace, I grabbed a bit of tatting and went to town. A ponytail reversed was wrapped with an earlier piece (the "bracelet" that became a "crown"), add some pearl drop bridesmaid earrings, and that little flower pin from the art fair to cover up the earring backs. And, voila! She had her little pretty princess hair!
I love tatting, but I believe beautifully made things must also be useful. This little bit of fancy made me very happy.
