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).
The patterns on this page are available to download for a small fee. Please contact me to purchase the desired pattern.

Level: Beginner This pattern is the result of doodling. Sometimes while in meetings, I seem to be able to listen better when my hands are in motion, i.e. doodling.

Level: Beginner This is quick to tat, easy, and fun. I think it would make a cute addition to clothing, handbags, or other things. It would also be fun to tat a 5-sided doily with it by adding picots at the apex of the outside chains, and joining the motifs there. I haven’t tried putting […]
Level: Intermediate I love the classic tatting pattern called hens and chicks and used it as the starting row on this ornament. It’s fast, pretty, and easy, and has a slight enough curve to it that it fits around a ball beautifully. I was most pleased with how well it sits on the ball. In […]

Thankfully, things are beginning to settle back into the […]
