Irene Woo's Butterfly Heart

To remember Irene Woo who passed away recently, I was delighted to work with Georgia Seitz to produce an updated pattern of her wonderful Butterfly Heart.  I had mentioned to Georgia that I had made a diagram of Irene's pattern several years ago (back in 2012 when I first tatted her heart) and that I'd be happy to update the pattern and add the diagram.  Georgia, who was a friend of Irene's, had permission so that we could share the pattern.  Here it is.  Georgia has also uploaded it to her website.

Clicking on the heart will take you to the pattern.

The pattern has been available to tatters since 1999 so I know many of you have tatted this lovely heart already but for those who haven't, I hope you'll enjoy making it.

Best wishes,
Frivole

  9. What is the thread and colorway? So pretty, and a lovely memorial.

    I am going to tat three framed hearts to represent "Hope, Faith, and Charity" - and coincidentally this is the one I chose to represent "Hope." A butterfly is often symbolic of the hope of change for the better and the hope of life after death.

    A kind and lovely gift to remember Irene Woo's passing. Thank you. -Marion
