Black beaded butterflies to edge a dress, Tudor roses blossoming on brooches, and a ring cushion trimmed with lacy flowers and pearls: tatting beautifully enhances clothes, jewelry, soft furnishings, and other accessories. This centuries-old craft still thrives today, so explore its potential with a wide collection of charming, innovative designs. Begin with a variety of patterns and motifs, including a simple snowflake, beads and picots, water lilies, and a ten-flower oval. Put them together to make mats and coasters, or stitch them onto a bangle for a hanging decoration. Take the art further, and fashion delicate earrings, elegant chokers, and pretty collars--or adorn blank cards with eye-catching designs. Over 40 original patterns, shown in color photographs and diagrams, will enchant you.
