Designer Note: The 2nd round will work up "wavy" but will lay flat withblocking. Can be stiffened and then ribbon attached. (I used Offray 5/8"metallic ribbon) For a different look, can be tacked onto a fabric"sandwich" (fabric/batting/fabric) as a Christmas Ornament. Usingvariegated tatting thread also makes an outstanding looking wreath!
