Tatting is enjoying a comeback.
With handmade crafts becoming more popular
more people are wanting to learn to tat.
Once you have learnt the basics
you can use your skills to make everything from jewellery to bookmarks.
This book is written to help novice tatters progress from the simplest of edgings
through to more complex projects such as bookmarks & heirloom mats.
The book has pictures and instructions to teach you how
to make the knot, how to use the shuttle to joining.
As a beginner tatter I think I'll wait till I've learnt a little more
before I start making the designs in this book.
The book contains some amazing designs
and gives you the tools so you can make your own items
using the different techniques.
I love the fact the book is ring-bound so you can
keep the book open on which ever project you are working on.
There are tips throughout the book to help you.
Each project has a chart to explain where you start and which stitches
you move onto.
Each project includes the pattern so you can use the skills
you are learning to make these
If you are a tatter and looking to expand your knowledge
and techniques then this will be a book
you'll want to turn to.
I received a copy of the book to review.
However all opinions expressed are my own.
No monies were received for this post.
