Needle Tatting Work

I have been feeling prosaic with my crochet for the last couple of weeks. So, because I have to be doing something all the time, I picked up needle tatting again. Here are few pieces that I tatted out.

This pendant is the first one that I designed. I tatted it in several different sizes.

Here is Quincy modeling it for me. Unlike most models this one works for food.

Key Chain

And the same design as a necklace

This is a pendant that is similar to a piece by TotusMel. I modified it some to match my tastes.

Here is another that I designed

This is Thor modeling the earrings-he is not as good of a model as Quincy!

I saw a design similar to this (done with a shuttle) in an old tatting pamphlet from 1895. I modified it a bit and all though I am happy with the way this one came out, I have not been able to duplicate it.

These earrings are ones that I made based on earrings that I saw someplace, I can not remember where, If you know who is the original creator of this, or if it is your design and would like credit please email me.

Just a simple design

Here a couple of simple necklaces.

As my mother gets older her skin has become rather fragile. She had to stop wearing her Saints medallion because the chain would sometimes tear her skin or leave abrasions. This white necklace is one that I made to wear the medallion on. That way the soft cotton would be gentle on her skin and she would still be able to wear her medallion.


  1. Thanks for commenting on my blog - I'm glad to know others feel the same way.

    That tatting is great! I love how your dogs are modeling the jewelry. Cute! Did you write down the patterns, by chance? I haven't tatted in a while

  2. It's always fun to see more tatting online! Nice to "meet" another tatter! :)
