So recently I've found the joy in making Lucky Stars, They are so much fun to make and really adorable. However after making so many of them I needed find a use for them! I love needle tatting, so I combined the two. I also decided after I finished this was perfect decoration to add to my niece's bedroom. The project also gave me time to practice split rings. I will also note it was a  labor love, even if it was time consuming.
