AJ made two circles of soft satin (matched to the bridal colors) and sewed them together leaving a space to turn. After turning sew opening shut and press flat. Baste tatting to satin and sew down with tiny stitches. Run a ribbon through the side rings of the cloverleaf to gather. Many thanks to AJ Suttong for sharing her work with the online tatting class.
