Tatting.


This is the result of my first tatting! I used a pattern in a book called "Tatted Snowflakes" by Vida Sunderman.

1 shuttle, red size 10 crochet thread


My second tatted piece: "Bejewelled Snowflake," also from the book, "Tatted Snowflakes" by Vida Sunderman. I made a silly mistake in the starting ring: I made seven picots instead of six. I didn't realize my mistake until the last stitch of the piece, so I just left it alone. Ooops! lol

I'm really loving tatting. It's super fast and easy (so far, anyway!)

I have been sewing. I have two dresses for cosplays which both need the hems finished (one of which is the yellow number from my last post) before I call them "finished!" I'm really excited about Anime Central! And I LOVE the characters I'm cosplaying! Nerd squees all over the place.

Beautiful!!! Nice work! Not bad at all for your first pieces! They're very nice. The snowflake patterns looks so pretty realized in that red thread! :)

@Jasmin: Thank you!!!!!

@TattingChic: Thank you, too!!!! I really liked the look of the red thread too. It made it a bit less "snowflakey." It's spring! I'm done with snowflakes for a while!!!! lol :D
