Check out my website at snapdragonlace.com where I'm blogging my progress as I work through the Priscilla Tatting Books from the early 1900s. I am updating the patterns using modern notation and finding more modern uses for the projects.
My grandmother tatted and as a kid I always wanted to learn how to do it, but was too young to get the hang of it. In college a friend and I spent a summer figuring out the basics from books and I've been addicted ever since!
Now days I travel a lot and I take my tatting with me everywhere. It's a great conversation starter. It doesn't matter where I am, when I pull out the shuttles people always ask what I'm doing.
We don't even have to speak the same language. Ive shown tatting to North African men in Italy and Armenian women in Los Angeles. I love sharing tatting with others!
This pattern is for a super cute mini-veil hair piece. Once you've learned how to tat onto the tulle, the instructions will show how to gather the tulle into a veil and attach it to a clip when your tatted edging is done. This technique could easily be made larger for a bridal veil, but makes for a fun statement hairpiece for any day of the week.
The instructions give the pattern for the flower from the first picture (orange and black veil). The flower on the red and black veil is an example to show that you can use any flower pattern for the top of the veil.
