Tatting - A Three-Dimensional Daisy from 1929

This is from a recent eBay purchase and it will take a while for me to work up to it (it's a little out of my league).

Very pretty! I'll bet you can do it! Please post a picture when you've finished it!

after a pep talk from Sharon and another look at the pattern, I am a little less intimidated. I have avoided "onion ring" tatting patterns before as my tension is not as even as it could be, but I have some vintage yellow Coats & Clarks that might look good in this.

What a cool pattern - and I thought I had seen every vintage pattern known to man LOL - I am going to try and tat this one up today, it's so unusual! Thank you so much for sharing it.

I printed it out and am carrying it around with me but still haven't tried it yet. Soon though!

I've seen that pattern on eTatters with an explanation. It sure looks cool. Looking forward to your pic of it when you're done.

I have done that one and it is lovely! It isn't difficult to do. There are by this time many lovely examples.

Yes, a lot of people have tried it -- it's unusual and so very vintage-looking.
