This book has just made my world more amazing.
I have tried to learn tatting numerous times.
Sometimes I can do the "flick" and
my stitches work and other times they don't.
This is where the book has changed everything.
You don't have to use a shuttle you can
use a needle!
This means no worrying about flicking
and I can start tatting!!!!

The start of the book takes through all
the tools and materials you can use
to start tatting.

The next section of the book shows you how
to create each of the stitches.
These instructions are made using a needle instead
of the shuttle.

There are clear instructions and clear
photo's for you to follow.
I love the fact that it even explains how
you can unpick your work if you need to
and what to do when the thread breaks.
Most books don't explain what do to
when things go wrong so it's a fantastic surprise
to find them in this book.

Then you move into the projects sections.
You will be glad to find out that
instructions and photo's are included to help
you with making the project.

Once you are used to the basics the
projects then move onto using things
like beads to make your designs even more special.
When Donatella moves onto using
Swarovski crystals the jewellery takes
on an amazing look that you would
think had been bought from a very expensive shop.

The projects aren't only jewellery they also
include items such as purses & mobile phone pouch.

If you have never tatted or you want to expand
your skills I would highly recommend this book.
