I wanted the concept of having butterflies as bracelet or anklet where the wings would really look like they were flapping, not just flat. So I drew my initial concept, with the tatting flow in mind. As I was tatting, however, the pattern changed as I saw fit.

#prototype of the #tatted "Butterflies" #anklet is done. I almost ran out if #shuttle thread. The image on the right shows the lock join, still using my original idea so no metal clasp or hook is needed. I like the effect of the wings folding. Just what I had in mind. 😊 #tattersofinstagram #designersofinstagram #designbyc5 #handmade #tatting
