Flowers in Her Hair

For those who were wondering, here's what I was doing with all those shuttles:

The base of the pattern is from this Japanese book:

I made up patterns for most of the flowers. 

For the color scheme I was nominally inspired by these flowers:

And here it is on a person:

I think with the colors it would look better on a blonde--it gets a little lost in my hair. :)


  1. It's quite beautiful and I think you've done the primroses (?) proud!

  2. Love it !!! The colours & inspiration are superb.
    I also love the freedom & choice offered by multiple shuttles in freeform tatting.

  3. Wow! It looks great. You did a wonderful job interpreting the flowers in tatting.

  4. Looks wonderful! The colors look nice in dark hair.

  5. That's a really cute wreath! It looks like it was made for your koala!

  6. I am interested in this book and glad to see you have made something beautiful from it!
