4th of July Tat-a-long 2023

 Welcome to the 2023 4th of July tat-a-long!  This year you will need size 20 thread in red, white and blue (if you are going with the theme) and size 10 seed beads (I used red).  If you don't have beads then just do a 1/2 inch of long picot where it says lbp.

  1. Hello, up way to early and actually saw this on day one so I think I will follow along even though I’m not home and can’t start till I get home unless I just use white since that’s all I brought with me. I needle tat so I will be looking for work arounds when necessary.


Anyone out there? Say hi if you are......
