Christening Cake Bootees



Instead of making a Christening cake decoration in icing sugar, that is so fragile that it might break in transit, I decided to make this little scaled down pair in tatting. The pattern, as many of you will recognise, is from Rebecca Jones' Complete Book of Tatting and I used Anchor cotton size 80. I shall be decorating the cake shortly and will post a picture when it is done.
