Tatting patterns and designs

Tatting patterns and designs DEFAULT

For the last ten years, I’ve been creating a new tatting pattern once a month for the Be-stitchedstore newsletter,  During that time, I have posted many of them here for anybody to enjoy.  I hope you do!

I would be delighted if you were to tell your friends about my designs, and if you send them to my site.  Please feel free to post pictures of your finished work on your site or blog.  If you were to add a link back to the pattern, I would be grateful, but you don’t have to. You can also send the photo to me, and I’ll post it here.  If you want to tat any of these designs and sell your finished tatting, please feel free to do so.  Please contact me if you want to use my designs as part of a tatting class you are teaching.

Designing and writing out a pattern takes a lot of my time and energy.  Please respect my efforts by not calling my designs your own or by posting the pattern on your site or any other site.  Please post a link to my pattern instead. These designs are copyrighted, so if you do repost or claim them, you are not only hurting me, you are breaking the law.  This includes large corporations  (JoAnn).

If you have any questions at all about how you can use these patterns, please email me at nancy @ tracyandprice.com

Enjoy!

Tatted Cherries

The trees are in full blossom here, and they’re gorgeous! I saw one particularly beautiful tree as I left a parking lot last week, and it occurred to me that it would be fun to tat some cherries. So here’s this month’s pattern! This is a beginner pattern and requires one shuttle. I used DMC […]

Tatted Beaded Dragonfly

I credit my husband for this pattern. I was having trouble coming up with an idea, and he just pulled this one out of his hat. I just had to figure out how to execute it. I’ll have to pick his brain more often. There are very few bugs I like, but I do like […]

Tatted Earrings

This month I wanted a design that was quick and fun. I always love earrings, so that’s what I decided on. It was fun rummaging through my beads to find just the right one for this pattern. This design is really quick, too! Once I had it figured out, I was able to put it […]

Tatted Celtic Cross

This month’s pattern is not one of my own, but is a pattern by Don Swearingen who very kindly said I could use it in my newsletter. I saved it for when I knew I’d really need it, and this month I did. On Monday, I raised my arm over my head and felt a […]

Tatted Butterfly Heart

I decided to make some frilly aprons for my granddaughters recently. The first one is for my 2-year-old granddaughter, and is the one pictured here. I absolutely loved it when I was done, but I decided it needed something special. So I tatted this butterfly within a heart with a heart bead dangling from it. […]

Tatted Bee

It was a fun challenge to design this little guy’s stripes and wings. After tossing a number of attempts, this was the final design. I liked him so much I put him on the apron I made for my granddaughter. He was so cute with the rainbow colors and the green pockets! I wish I’d […]

Tatted “Not-so-Ugly” Medallion

My mother has a quilt she calls the “Ugly Quilt”. Her quilt group made a bunch of blocks of one particular pattern, and somehow she ended up with them all. I’m not sure of the story, actually. But she laid them all together and decided it looked awful. She didn’t like the colors, or the […]

Tatted Bluebird

My son bought a small bird feeder for our cats’ entertainment this past month. We put it on the back porch where it’s easy for us to see, and we’ve had a few house finches come visit. It’s been fun, and the cats have really enjoyed it. They’re indoor-only cats, so the birds are safe. […]

Tatted Goodie Bowl

Here is another project where I set out to make something and ended up with something else. I had originally meant to make this little bowl to fit a little, plastic shot glass I found at the party store. When I finished it, I saw that it would be really hard to stretch it over […]

Tatted Holly Edging

I had a request for a Christmas pattern a little earlier this year, so here it is! I intended to tat a longer demo of this, but I made a mistake again. I have such a hard time with edgings for some reason. This edging actually has a bit of curve to it, so if […]

Tatted Rose and Vine Edging

I needed an edging for a hand towel, and wanted something a bit different. This is what I came up with. It took me a bit to work out the details, but I really like it. This will be a Christmas gift for my mother-in-law, so I need to get busy to get it done […]

Tatted Musical Notes

My daughter is a musician. Recently, when we were talking about my newsletter, I told her how I struggle sometimes with ideas. Between her and my sister-in-law, they immediately threw out about a dozen ideas without hardly thinking about it. Yahoo! One of my daughter’s ideas was to tat musical notes, and that’s where this […]

Tatted Balloon

I had fun creating this little design. Wouldn’t a bouquet of these be fun on a card or a baby’s shirt? This is a beginner pattern and requires one shuttle. The balloon is about 1 inch (2.5mm) in diameter when done with size 20 thread. I used Lizbeth size 20 thread in in Lizbeth Caribbean […]

Tatted Medallion

I plan to add a tatted medallion to the dress I’m wearing to my son’s wedding in April. I decided it should have some depth to it and some extra laciness, too. This medallion is the result. My dress is a charcoal gray, so I will tat it again using black, charcoal gray, and silver […]

Tatted Neckline Inset

I wanted to use tatting as one of the finishing touches on the dress I made for my son’s wedding this month. I chose a round neckline and tatted this little design to go on center front. It fit perfectly, but unfortunately, it just didn’t work with the dress. So I cut it off at […]

Tatted Hairband

I would think most little girls would love to have this headband. Plus, it’s a fast, easy, inexpensive, and fun project. The only challenge I had was to keep from burning my fingers on the hot glue. If you’re like me, you have odd pieces of tatting in little bags, mostly mistakes I’ve made but […]

Tatted Square Motif

I thought I’d challenge myself by designing a circle within a square. It was a real design challenge, but it’s reasonably easy to stitch up. The heart-shaped rings are easy to do, but they can be hard to close. I suggest you use a larger-sized thread, and that you tat a little more loosely than […]

Tatted Key

I lose everything. I lose my scissors, my pens, my keys, and I lose email. I designed this key as a request from someone, and now I’ve lost her email! It was fun researching skeleton keys. They come in such amazing variety. Some are very plain, and others are incredibly ornate, so it left me […]

Tatted Oval Doily Final

Here’s the final row of the doily I’ve been working on since July! I had a real “designer’s block” when it came to this row, so it took me a long time to get my head around it. This pattern uses two tatting shuttles, although the second and last rows require only one. You can […]

byiluvtotat

Tatted Oval Doily Row 3

Here’s row 3 of the doily I’ve been working on since July! This pattern uses two tatting shuttles, although the second row requires only one. You can also use the shoelace trick, but I think in this instance, the work will look better if it’s not used. You can find row 1 hereYou can find […]

Ideas, Paths, Processes
& Diagramming

QUICK DESIGNING &/or DIAGRAMMING : A  Cheater's Perspective ;-P 



DECONSTRUCTING  PATTERNS

A fun journey into how to view large patterns & derive patterns from them. I used Magic Square from which umpteen patterns can be derived !

Motifs from Magic Square - square, octagonal, hearts, even a cross ! Both regular & irregular shapes.

Triangles from the Magic Square - triangular motifs & patterns. 

Edging patterns from the Magic Square - possible edgings, insertions, bookmarks, crosses, broad laces, and bracelets! 

MY  DESIGN  PROCESS

Sharing some of my paths towards designing my own patterns ...

Design Process for Spiral Snowflake using Sketch Guru app 

Bonds of Love Bracelet/Rakhi : adding beads and adapting into a bracelet 

The Heart Within : giving new life to a wrongly tatted snowflake

Split Colour Edging : the design & tatting trial paths 

Neemiss Snowflake - from needle tatting design to shuttle tatting, a necklace turns into a snowflake !

Inchies - perfect 1 inch tatted squares from grid sketches. 

Reflected Nights snowflake - a different version emerges from wrongly attached rings !

happy tatting with a muskaan always :-)  

(muskaan means smile)
