Of course, I can’t leave that ‘empty space’ between the braiding just sit there, when it’s crying out for tatted motifs!
This was the quickest motif I could find (Mary McCarthy’s butterfly, from my October 17 post) to attach to the egg, so I could alert you to them.
There are many possibilities for embellishing these eggs even more. Need I mention beads?
The colors aren’t showing as well as I’d like here, and there are shadows in the photo, but it kind of gives you the idea.
Because the eggs are hollow (but not hard plastic), it is possible to use pins. (I use metallic pins that have a gold bead at one end.) However, always be careful not to let children play with the eggs, even though the pins don't pull out easily.
Around Easter I’ll be posting eggs that I’ve decorated with tatting over the years.
