Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? This was my first step towards designing my own tatting pattern. Today, I am the author of my very own self published tatting pattern book, Tatted Lace Patterns. What advice would you give someone starting this project? First of all, you have to know how to tat and understand the basic concept of tatting. Bead tatting is not difficult if you understand the basic concept. You will know where to string the beads once you understand that. Remember to block the tatting after the piece is done. Do not use iron or the glass beads will break. If you don't want to sew in ends, hide the remaining thread ends in a clasp as a protection. Do not tie a knot and leave it there.
