My first try at Needle Tatting

My first Needle Tatted motifI’ve been wanting to give needle tatting a try for a while and finally I’ve done so. This is my first ever attempt – a little motif in size 10 rainbow thread. Not bad for a first attempt 🙂

The tatting itself was much easier to learn than shuttle tatting – I’ve done this with the aid of an online tutorial by TotusMel and a copy of Barbara Foster’s book and it took my about an hour.

By contrast, my first piece of shuttle tatting (which I still have) took 2 full days and 6 different instruction sets, of course there was no online or video anywhere in those days.
