August 15 - Vest completion by Ruth

Copyright 1978 - 2007 Ruth Perry

Here is Hector Bear wearing his vest. Isn'r he adorable?

What I wanted to show here is the edging around the front. I tatted chains with 5 picots between the flowers, but in the front I tatted a ring with 6 + 6 where the two flowers join together.

There are lots of books that have petal, or shuttle shaped motifs that could be used to tat this in a larger version. Anne Orr's Classic Tatting Patterns has a centerpiece on page 3 that has one included in it.

Any edging would work for around the arm holes and front, collar, bottom edge. Have fun! Enjoy... I'm going to be gone for a few days again. More when I get back probably Monday.
