Tatting for Grandma

I'm learning how to Tat via YouTube and the internet. 
My Grandma Nellie Flowers always wanted to learn. So this is for you and me, Grandma!
On my car trip to work, I brought up Instuctables to see the proper hand placement. I know it's way too tight. Right now it's practice, practice, practice!


  1. I'm teaching myself needle tatting the same way --- via YouTube! I purchased a Craftsy class but it did not cover the beginning basics (even though it was supposed to be a beginner level class).

    I'm left handed so I have an added issue. . . . but it is going well so far.

    Good luck!

    1. I love Craftsy! Keep up the tatting!!!

  2. Is that needle tatting you are doing? I could *never* figure out how to tat with a shuttle. Everyone makes it look so easy but it simply confounds me. Then I "discovered" needle tatting and it makes perfect sense to me! I absolutely loved making colored tatted edgings to trim the garments I made for my girls when they were little.

    The only problem I have encountered is that I can't "translate" traditional tatting instructions into something that will work with a needle. I'm sure there is a way to do it. I was just so happy to be able to do what I did. :-)

    1. Edgings sound like a neat way to use your tatting. I'll try that when I get good at this!!
      Thank you for reading my blog!
