Previously, tatting was mainly used as an edging, or for doilies. With the more modern approach, you can make just about anything! There are so many great patterns out there, and wonderfully helpful websites. I must say tatters are some of the friendliest people I’ve come across.
I managed to finish Anne Bruvold’s ‘Flying Minor Norwegian Dragon’.
The pattern is gorgeous, and free on Anne’s site or on http://www.intatters.com/index.php?referrerid=3143
