Off the Shuttle: Tatted Carnation w/Beads

I saw a white version of this on the Tatting Facebook page, and since I owned the book that held the pattern, I was inspired to make one of my own. The pattern is "Carnation Boutonniere" from New Things Happen to Tatting, Book 159 (The Spool Cotton Company, 1941). I used Lizbeth thread, size 20, color 652 Royal Blue. The beads are Czech seed beads in pearl blue. The button is silver plastic with a rhinestone from JHB International. The completed project in that size thread is 3.5 inches (nearly 9 mm). I sewed a small piece of felt on the back to accommodate a bar pin.
