Summer has flown by and now it is time to think fall, believe it or not. The very best fall patterns I
have found are, of course, by my all time favorite designer, Karen Lindsay. Karen’s fall leaf is simply gorgeous! The pattern looks a bit complicated, but is actually quite easy to tat. The leaf pattern is a beginning level pattern. As with many of Karen’s patterns the leaves are applied to a sampler and then hung on the wall. How perfect for fall decor.
My second favorite pattern is the tatted witch. I love this wimsical witch. Everytime I look at the witch, I smile. The witch is tatted with split-rings, so this pattern is an advanced level pattern. The witch is a good pattern to tat when practicing the split ring, because the lengths of split rings on the skirt wouldn’t have to exact for the finished tatting to be cute.
Look under the Pattern tab for photos of both the tatted Leaf Pattern and the tatted Witch Pattern.
I have had a couple of requests for tatted Holiday patterns. I highly recommend Karen Lindsay’s tatted patterns. Her website can be located on my home page or at Tatting Applications llc. For a beautiful Fall sampler try her tatted leaf pattern, it is very beautiful. I also love her witch pattern, it makes me chuckle everytime I see it.
I am so grateful to my web host, he is amazing. He has set the new site changes to allow video. Is anyone out there interested in my posting a clarification video on any particular tatting pattern that you may be having difficulties with?
I have seen thousands of Tatting Patters. I keep going back to Karen Lindsay’s Ribbon pattern, it is my favorite for many reasons. First and foremost it is so versitle. Changing the color combination completely changes the overall look of the finished tatting, but the pattern itself can be tatted in any combination of colors and be appropriate for any time of the year. Secondly, I love the pattern because it is easy enough for a beginning tatter to tat and yet holds the interest of an accomplised tatter. Most patterns do not fall into these two catagories so easily.
There are here! New Instant Downloadable Tatting Patterns by my all-time favorite tatting designer, Karen Lindsay. Thank you to Karen for Download patterns. I absolutely love Karen’s idea of applying tatting to a wall sample. What a novel idea and why didn’t we think of wall samplers years ago? Now, there is an application idea for all of those little pieces of tatted lace, and motifs we love to tat. No more boxes of odds and ends.
Women love hobbies! Working women and noncareer women, young and mature, we all love to create, it is part of our nature to be creatative. With the economic changes we are experiencing what could fit into a tight budget better than tatting. A tatting shuttle and a spool of thread costs less than $10.00. With some time and creativity the $10.00 becomes a beautiful article to add to your home or give as a gift, which saves even more money by giving a special handmade gift rather than something found at a craft store. The money spent on the shuttle is an investment to be reused over and over again. In general one spool of thread can make two or three motifs.
If the economic crunch is pinching your pocket and you still have the urge to be creative, tatting is the perfect answer!
