I've been wanting to try this for a long time. I'm not really sure I'm doing it right although I was attempting to follow Patty Dowden's instructions. I saw the hyperbolic crochet coral reef too when a friend sent me the link several years ago so when I saw that Patty had been able to transfer the technique to tatting, I was intrigued. This is probably as far as I'll get for awhile though.
My plate is pretty full right now and I tatted this to go along with several other blossoms on my nametag.
I've been meaning to embellish this for a long time. The only wording is at the top and that's where all my tatted and crocheted pretties will go. The backside has a pocket just the right size for my business cards plus 2 pens or something pen-size. Under the flap is a zippered pouch and there is the same amount of room behind the zippered pouch for more goodies. Keys, money, credit card. I hope to get a lot of use out of this but I have a red one that is similar so I can do another color scheme on that one, in case I get bored. Girls like variety, you know. It has a nice heavy duty black lanyard that it's hanging from.
I think I will probably bring my dyed motifs and rock cozies for some additional show and tell on Saturday. So much to do between now and then!
