What are you most proud of? I won a blue ribbon at the Tulsa State Fair for this bonnet! This was my first Fair entry ever, and I was thrilled to see my work on display. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Learn to tat! I don't know how to tat with a shuttle, but followed Barbara Foster's instructions in "Learn Needle Tatting Step-by-Step," published by Handy Hands Tatting. Very useful photographs, and a DVD is also available. Don't be intimidated! Lace making is rather simple, especially if you have slight experience with knitting or crochet.
