Tatted Berries

Summer in Colorado brings fresh strawberries to the stores and to the mountains. I designed three berries to celebrate summer here–a raspberry, a wild strawberry, and a domestic strawberry.

Wouldn’t these look great on the collar of a denim shirt?

These are beginner-level 1- and 2-shuttle patterns using simple rings and chains. They were tatted using DMC Cebelia size 30 thread. Each berry is about 1 to 1.5 inches long.
