Tatted Flag Earring

Wave the flag!

I wish tatters had their own flag to wave at tatting events. It is always fun and colorful. Flags are a part of the daily life of every country I believe. We display them to honor those who have passed, those who have made great sacrifices. those who fight for causes and those who want to share their joy in life.

These earrings are from the files of the Online Tatting Class. The colors are red, white and blue from our own flag but those tatters in other nations can easily substitute the colors of their national flags.
