Birgit's Tatting Page

Welcome to Birgit's Tatting Page!

I started tatting in March 2000, and have really been enjoying it! I am self-taught with the help of the internet. My first attempts at tatting turned out well enough that I wanted to continue. Below are some of my original patterns, as well as some examples of my tatting with links to the page where that pattern originated.
