A few weeks ago, a friend at work asked me to teach her how to tat. I hadn't done it in years, so I got out the tatting shuttles, the thread and started playing. I doubt I'll ever do the large intricate doilies that my Aunt used to make, but I do enjoy making these little butterfly motifs that can be used on Crazy Quilting!
Instructions for the pink and lavender butterflies can be found at WlydWmn. The instructions for the ecru "Onion Ring Butterfly" are available here.
If you want to learn more about tatting, Tatting Chic (who is one of the most regular commenters on my blog!) has lots of links to sites and patterns! She always has something inspiring to view!
