You've done a stunning piece well done. If you want to stiffen it you could use a starch spray, or sugar water. 3 tabel spoons of water and 1 1/2 of sugar, stir it well then dab it onto your tatting. You can leave it to dry or dry it with a hair dryer. It makes the pieces stiff for things like bookmarks or decorations.

I can't wait to see what you do next. Send me your email and I'll mail you some patterns over.

Thanks Nobones, I'll send you a pm.
KnitClickChick, I'm still working on making decent sized picots, too, so no worries! I'm sure I'll get faster at this, but it is really slow going right now! I'm having fun though, and that's what counts!

Mariblue, your ornament is so pretty!!!! I'm glad you posted your picture and added the links to the videos...I've never seen tatting done before, I was was really curious to know how it was done. I keep seeing "tatting shuttles" at Joann's or Hobby Lobby, and I kept wondering, "How do you use them?"

Nobones, thanks so much for your videos--they are great! But you make it look too easy. I know if I were to start trying this, it would be a disaster!

So is tatting essentially a series of picots and knots (stitches)?

hmm. I definitely opened this thread thinking that it was about tattoos...

not that I'm disappointed! it's beautiful! I just thought to myself, "wow...I didn't know that there were many knitting tattoo artists..."
