Last night I gave into the temptation to tat on a doodad (as many have called them). I bought these at Hobby Lobby. They have no real name, but they are in 4 metal like colors(gold, brass, copper, and silver), and they are strung together like a charm bracelet. I think they are plastic even though they look like metal. And they are about the size of a dime.
Well, I wanted to try one of Diane: http://lacelovinlibrarian.blogspot.com/2012/09/snowflake-3-without-doodad-pattern.html doodad snowflake designs(this one #3), but her doodads must be smaller cuz' I didn't even get half way around with the first 3 rings and I realized this wouldn't work. But I think I was doing pretty good. I even tatted the Josephine rings which were new to me! :)
So, hesitantly I decided to find some inspiration to tat my own. So, I looked for snowflake designs(since there is a snowflake design in the center of these doodads) through Google images. And I found one (which I would post-but I don't want to cause copy write problems). It was a drawn snowflake which had a male and female deer drawn where the point rings are, but I like the rest of the design. My snowflake doesn't really resemble the drawn one well, but I do like the result. And I may try again with this one, or another inspired one(later!). :)
Oh, this is tatted in size 20 Lizbeth Blue Ice.
Have a great day!!! :)
