Tat a Pot Plant!

I came across this pattern on ‘Intatters’ some time ago and tatted it as a gift for a friend of mine.

Here’s the link – http://homemadebymeta.blogspot.nl/2013/06/potatted-plants.html

I used a polystyrene ball covered with felt inside the flowerpot (which originally held a slightly goofy looking bear).

Of course, Titch decided I needed some help. The black bag under her head is my tatting bag…

  1. Wow! That looks like so much work! Love the different greens.

      It is quite a lot of tatting, but it is such a simple pattern that it is a great ‘take-along’ piece. You do just get some funny looks when people ask you what you are making…

    What a fabulous idea. Especially for someone who might be allergic to the real thing. (Though, I must admit “pot plant” has quite a different connotation here in the US, so that threw me a bit at first.) Lovely work!

      Two countries divided by a single language.
      Glad you liked it!
      I posted some photos on the Intatters website and was also complimented on my realistic dirt… 😉

    This is awesome. I do a lot of handwork and admire tatters – one thing I’ve never been able to get the hang of! Great blog.
