Turtle Bookmark

Can you see the turtles. This pattern is from Julie Patterson's book 'Just Marking Tome'. She explained that this pattern was designed by her nine year old son. I love this amazing pattern.  I did this in Lizbeth Size 80 in Col. 161/Sea Island Citrus. Julie also suggested that it be tatted in 3 colours.

It reminded me of the time when we took a family vacation to the East Coast of Malaysia in the 1980s to see the leatherback turtles laying eggs on the beach.


  1. Oh totally gorgeous, I must try and get this book.

  2. That is so awesome!!! I do see the turtles!! :) You picked a fabulous color too!!! :)

  3. Very nice pattern, and I'm always impressed with the use of
    Size eighty thread. Your tatting is always so neat!

  4. I love turtles! This is really beautiful. It's like a little turtle parade! One of my favorite colors is in there too.

  5. I am tatting this now. Really, this is a very pretty, rather elegant pattern.
