The Official Tatted Maple Leaf!

Yesterday, my good buddy posted this:

Can you tat the Leafs logo? just askin'...

Today, I took up the challenge:
Here is the Maple Leaf's Logo.

Here is the Leaf's Logo from Tat-land.

I am so pleased that I decided to do this, because, if I had not, I would never have known how much easier this was to tat this pattern now than it was just a few short months ago. It only took a couple of hours this time, as opposed to the few days it took before.
How very reassuring!

An afterthought: I wanted the stem to look thicker and wondered what would happen if I doubled the thread. It worked beautifully! I will do this , next time I tat this leaf. I think the more substantial tail is much more appealing. Anybody else done this?

  6. Very impressive! Both how quickly you whipped it up and the finished product. Love the stem!

  7. Thanks, Julia! I accept the compliment!

    Ann, I am glad you like that little stem. I'm really so pleased with it. It has a lovely, sturdy feel - like a real stem : )

  8. HI Fox, that is very good looking leaf,
    you are doing very well. your clunies are looking good, I have a long way to go on my clunies too.
    good luck on your T.A.T journey.

  9. Thanks so much, Ladytats. Those clunies are always on my mind when I have a shuttle in my hand. I love doing them and if I do them enough, they will improve! Big Sigh! : ) Fox

  10. What a great maple leaf! I love what you did with the stem.

    But even more intriguing is the sig file at the clever of you to add TAT-romancy to your list of impressive talents.

    Can I be your apprentice?
