That is really stunning.  Where did you learn to tat?  I would love to learn to do something like that.

Hey, another tatter!

There are 3 ways to tat: Shuttle, needle, and cro-tatting.
All three methods have their pros and cons, so it's mostly a question of preference.


This site has video instructions for shuttle tatting
http://www.tatting.net/techniques.html

Stitchguide also has tutorials.
http://www.stitchguide.com/stitches/tatting/stitch_pages/tatt_shuttleDS.html

You will need a special (extra long) tatting needle for needle tatting. They're 1-3 dollars for a set of 2 or 3. I've seen them at Hobby Lobby. Hobby Lobby also has shuttles.

It's possible to shuttle tat without a shuttle, but I don't recommend this for someone who isn't familiar tatting already. Here is a link to a cardboard shuttle that you can glue to cardstock and cut out.

However, a real shuttle (with plastic on both sides of the thread) is easiest to learn with, since the stitch involves sliding the thread between your fingers and the shuttle.

I'm glad you like it.
I learnt to tat from a book. The instrustions I found online I just couldn't work it out.
ecinue88 i'm glad to see there is another tatter around these parts. How long have you tatted? like i said i have only just learnt and there is still along way for me to go before i can do the stuff my Nana used to.

I haven't been tatting long either, about a year. I taught myself the hard way through reverse engineering some tatting that I had gotten. Mostly I do shuttle tatting because I can do that much quicker than the other two.

Wow that must have been a REALLY hard way to learn.
My nana tried to teach me when i was about 10 but she never really explained that important "flip" to me.

For anyone wanting to learn I have just come across this site which seams to explain things really well (for me at least)
