Eighth Motif

Teresa in the Tatting forum at eCraftWorld mentioned using two different threads wound on the shuttle to make bookmarks. That sounded like an interesting idea, so I gave it a try. This little bit was the result. It's made of one strand of white DMC Size 80 tatting cotton and one strand of Coats hand quilting thread in varigated blues. I think the color combindation makes it look just a bit like denim. It stopped being a bookmark when I ran out of thread on one of the shuttles. Now it is going to be a bit of decoration for my niece's dark-blue t-shirt so it won't look so "boy". ;) The pattern is "Design 43" from Christel Wiedmann's Tatting, 60 Original Lace Treasures.
