What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience!! Don't be afraid of undoing stitches when they don't flip correctly. Enjoy the hours it takes to create a small piece like this one!

Q&A with sewnsew

Marilee Rockley asked:
Gorgeous! What a great idea. I'm curious about how the tatting is attached to the bell. It looks like it just fits perfectly.
sewnsew answered:
Thank you for your gracious compliment! I was amazed that this piece fit so nicely on the bell. It's not attached yet. I'm still deciding if I want to use it as a photo frame for another ornament. If I end up keeping this piece on the bell, I'll most likely tac it down in a few places with glue. Wish there was enough time before Christmas to make more than one of these!
