Here it is! This sweet little fan designed by Connie Strobel is the winner of this month's tatting design contest!
This pattern is quick and easy, and has lots of potential uses. You could use it as a decoration on gifts, add ribbon and make a bookmark, or you could glue it to stationery, or any number of other things.
Thank you Connie, and thank you to everyone who submitted a pattern for this contest. They were all wonderful designs!!! It was very hard to decide on one.
This pattern is beginner level and uses two shuttles.
