"But, really, why does anyone create? You feel a... a restlessness inside, a need to make something new, something no one has ever seen before. You want to add to the beauty and the richness of the world with a gift, an offering that is uniquely yours. It's an act of selfishness and generosity, all rolled into one."

My Tatting Patterns

Here are the tatting patterns I've designed-- at least the ones worth sharing.

For Sale:

I have two patterns sadly, only one pattern right now that I offer for sale. All proceeds are donated to the New Mexico Brain Injury Alliance.

The first is the snowflake "Angels in the Snow", which sells for $3 US.

Angels in the Snow

The other is was the pendant "Jeweled Waterfall". This one was a more complicated pattern to write, so it's $4. Note that some specialized jewelry findings are necessary to make this one; information on where to buy these is included in the pattern.

Unfortunately, I have to take this one off sale for now, as it seems the necessary findings have been discontinued. If they are ever reinstated, I will start selling the pattern again. Or if you happen to come across a leftover finding and want the pattern, feel free to e-mail me.

Please read this paragraph before you order: All sales of "Angels in the Snow" are by e-mail. Free instant download sites, like the one I use for my free patterns below, don't allow me to set up a "gateway" to give access only to those who have paid. Since I don't have a high volume, and I donate it all to charity anyway, I really can't afford to pay for a service that would let me do this. So once you place your order, please be patient. As soon as you make your payment, PayPal will send me an e-mail to let me know about it. Once I see that e-mail from PayPal, I will send you your pattern, using the e-mail address you have given to PayPal. I promise I will e-mail your pattern to you as soon as I can, but I'm not online all the time. Sometimes I'm asleep, or at work, or just doing something else. I do try my hardest to send out all patterns within 24 hours, and it's usually much less than that.

Free Patterns:
These are much easier, or at least faster, to get. Just click on the link to see the pattern.

    1. Thanks. Happy fall! You've probably got some leaves that actually look like this already. :)

  2. your page looks good. however, I wanted to access your earrings pattern and Keep and Share said I had to ask you to allow me to view it. My acct name is ladytatslace. Or you need to set the sharing controls to public for your documents.

  3. Sorry, I thought it had defaulted to public view. I'll look into it. Thanks for letting me know.

  4. Thank you so much for sharing your patterns!! And for making it so we could access them!! :)
