Tatting

I did it! I did it! I actually finished a piece of tatting actually two pieces of tatting! The one on the left is the first one tatted and it's a little rough in places but I think the second one is much better. If anyone out there does needle tatting and would give me a few pointers I would love to hear from you. I can't always figure out what the pattern means for me to do next. The piece that I'm working on now is more difficult and the instructions aren't as clear for a beginner as they could be.

I wish I knew how to tat!!I am a hands on person...so the online tutorials do not help. I have a jar with several shuttles that I look at from time to time...and wish....someday maybe.

Hi Dawn, I will probably put them on hearts. I picked up two books from the library yesterday...just wish they would be more thorough writing instructions. Give it a try...maybe someone local can give you a helping hand.

Hi Iris, your tatting is great! You would laugh so much if I showed you my first pieces ... I laugh at them myself. Oh well, I hope to improve with practice. Have the same troubles as you following the patterns, I cannot work out what to do next, so I do my own thing. Maybe that is where I am going wrong!
I found this the other day, these flowers look gorgeous and so easy,but do you think I can do it. NO. LOL LOL
