Tatting is fun!!

A week ago, while surfing YouTube I came across a video tutorial by OVW about tatting. I absolutely love her crochet tutorials and used to follow them often when I first started to crochet. So back to the video about this thing called tatting which I’ve never heard of before. In the video, she was demonstrating how to make a flower earring and when I saw the end product I fell in love (I know, a little dramatic, but true). How did I know nothing about this awesome thing?!? As it turns out, it’s not a novelty either – it has been around since the early 19th century.

I had so get my hands on some tatting needles and fast! Since me and eBay are best buds, I asked him for some help and a few days later my set of 6 needles arrived. I jumped back online and watched all three parts of OVW’s tutorial and made myself two pairs of earrings. I absolutely love how they came out and making them was so much fun!
