Tatted Heart

My favorite quilt shop announced a month ago that it was closing. Today was the last day, and I felt I wanted to do something for them to tell them thank you for the years they were open. So I designed this little heart, and tatted one for each of the owners.

This is an experienced beginner pattern and requires two shuttles. It is about 1.25 inches (4 cm) across when done with size 20 thread.

I used Lizbeth Twirlz size 20 thread in color 401 Candy Hearts.
