Victorian Tatting

This is how I began, tatting row 10.





On the left is the shuttle I purchased on E-bay, and the right, I made a while ago with soldering not that fun. 
While on my E-bay purchasing spree, I bought this brooch that seems to match this Victorian theme and flowers in her hair.  A watercolor made about 12 years ago.  It took this long to find something to go with it  ha ha :







I made this with random tatting, no rhyme or reason, found that it help make this shirt modest for me.
 To see it, check out the side bar of this blog under the butterfly.
One more great way to use tatting.
 Have a great weekend!

  2. Random tatting is much more difficult than it sounds - you did a good job, especially with beads added.

    1. Thank You so much, at the time I had the pretty glass beads that seem to match that green color thread and not very many of them.

  3. I love the tatting added to the shirt - great idea for some of those really low cut tops. I think it would take me forever to do any kind of random tatting - I would never be 100% 'done'.

    1. That is very funny, and yet you are right. I said to may self " I am out of beads and this is an odd rounded triangle shape but pretty" and just stoped not knowing it would become anything. Then I bought the shirt years afterwards, that was too low :)

  7. Thank You I tried on my own years ago without computer and did not get very far it is like you need someone to show you how. I wonder with all the You tube videos if I could learn with that but not sure!

  8. Your JS tatting is so precise - love the photo with it in your palm ... enhances the lacyness & beauty of the pattern.
    Cute modesty panel :-) I used a triangle of the magic square for one of my deep-V necked front.

  12. Great use for Random Tatting. I started row 10 the same way. Your lovely stitches make my JS cry to be picked up, silly thing.
