This is my own original tatting design, created as a pattern in pdf format. The pattern is for a tiny tatted snowflake - both a plain and a beaded version. In size 20 thread, the snowflakes are around 1" - 1 1/2", and in size 100 thread, about 5/8".
This listing is for a pdf pattern only, not actual tatted snowflakes.
I would call this an intermediate level tatting pattern that uses two shuttles, rings, chains, picots, joins and beads. There are no tatting instructions, but the bead work is fully explained and fairly simple - why not try your hand at a little beading in your tatting!
The written long-hand instructions are in English. Unlike some of my other patterns, it does not contain the stitch count over the scan (the dark and light contrast in the scan was difficult to work with). However, the pattern also contains a clear, close-up scan of some snowflakes so you can see the stitch count pretty well.
The pattern will be sent as an attachment to the e-mail address associated with your PayPal account. If you would like it sent to an address other than your PayPal e-mail, please say so in the "notes to seller" area of the purchasing transaction.
The pattern file size is approximately 139 KB, and is in pdf format. It is necessary to have Adobe Reader on your computer in order to open this file, but you can get that program for free at http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Returns & exchanges
I want you to love the piece you buy - if for any reason you are unsatisfied with your Elizabeth's Lace original, please message me so that we can work out an exchange or refund.
You will receive the item in a box, with all my contact information and how to care for your Elizabeth's original (it's surprisingly easy!).
Custom orders are my pleasure. There are so many patterns and thread and bead colors that the possibilities really are almost limitless. What you see in my etsy shop is only a small sampling of what my regular inventory contains - but to scan each and every piece is just beyond my abilities (could someone give me about eight more hours in the day? Or at least three or four more hands??) :-) However, I'd be very pleased to work up something special and unique just for you...please click on "request custom item" on the from page of my shop or message me to discuss the possibilities.
The majority of sales I make are at art/craft shows. Unfortunately, that means that sometimes items I have listed for sale here on etsy will suddenly disappear without warning because I have had to deactivate them when they sold at a show. If you had something hearted and it disappears (shows up in your favorites as "expired or deactivated by seller") that is likely what has happened. Sometimes I will relist an item once I get it made again, but if you are really interested in something you saw and it has disappeared, seemingly never to return, please convo me - it's likely we can work something out!
