Here are the top ten articles for the Tatting Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. 2 Edgings - Cecilia Vanek
This leaflet was produced by the American Thread Company as an advertisement for Star Thread around 1939. It was rescued from loss by Sharon Merrow and is now being shared with the Online Tatting Class and all the tatters on BellaOnline.com!
2. More Tatted Edgings - Cecilia Vane
From the American Thread Company leaflet 79-9-39 with Cecilia Vanek designs tatting patterns, here are two more patterns to enjoy. Pattern #8 reminds me of a row of flower bushes. It would be a good pattern to use a variegated thread in tatting the blossoms and a greenish thread for the leaves.
3. Japanese Needle Tatting
You will need patience to master this needle tatting technique. Unlike shuttle tatting and traditional needle tatting, the tool does not hold a supply of thread with which to work. Instead, Japanese needle tatting functions more like crochet in that it draws continually from the ball of thread.
4. Beaded Valentine Heart Sachet
This dainty valentine can not only carry Cupid's message, but also serve as a pin cushion, brooch holder, or a sweetly scented sachet.
5. Il Lavoro Chiacchierino Series
Here's an update on this long-running series of tatting books produced by Mani di Fata is a treasure trove of traditional tatting patterns.
6. Forgotten Angel - Mary Maynard
A tatted angel by Mary Maynard using floating rings and node stitch.
7. Hearts & Flowers
Hearts & Flowers by Mary Joseph Donohue and Sue Hanson. From the files of the Online Tatting Class, March 2007- 2008. Use with permission.
8. Flurry Snowflake by Harolah Cheser
Flurry Snowflake by Harolahlala (Harolah Cheser), aka The Shade Tree Designer, features the use of floating rings.
9. 2018 Tatting Fundraiser Quilt
