Introduction: Awareness Tatted Ribbon Charm

About: I'm an artist who loves making pretty things! I have a gorgeous chocolate lab who accompanies me on hair-brained projects. I love the beach and I love crafting.I also run a crafting blog and and an etsy shop.

Given that the month is October and it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would make something simple. That anyone can make, Its also great way to practice tatting for those who are beginning. The ribbon color can be made in any color. They make great gifts, and are a wonderful way to show support. The Ribbon is a reminder.  It spreads awareness and reminds/encourages women to have regular check-ups which can prevent cancer or stop it in it's earliest stages. Its a symbol, to fight for a cure.

For information on supporting breast cancer. Help find a cure. Cancer has taken many, I lost my Grandfather to Lung Cancer.
