1. 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.
2. Block Heart Bracelet-Muskaan
A one-pass block-tatted bracelet.
3. Traditional vs Contemporary Tatting
What is traditional tatting? Does the use of a second shuttle to throw off floating rings from a chain make it contemporary?
4. 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.
5. Bugle Bead Snowflake
Snowflake with Bugle Beads by Dianna Stevens ©1999 (from the files of the Online Tatting Class)
6. Bicolor Needle Tatted Rings
Bicolor rings using needle tatting and two different colored threads wrapped alternately.
7. Oval Shuttle motif
Norma Benporath (1900 - 1998) designed lovely tatting patterns which were published by SEMCO in the pre- and during the WWII years. This pattern caught my attention because of its oval shuttle-like shape. It is from the Home Beautiful Tatting Book #4
8. Plastic Tatted Doily
I was quite surprised when I found the first plastic doily made with a tatted lace pattern.
9. Name Tags by AJ Sutton
AJ Sutton is 92 years young and still tatting. She also teaches china painting. She is a long time member of the Online Tatting class, too. These cute name tags feature split rings with beads in the center
