One tatted collar finished.
It's not as big as it should be, mainly because I didn't really think that I could do this and so opted to do a smaller amount, now I wish I'd made it bigger but there's always another time. It would probably fit a small girls dress but I think I'm going to mount it on black velvet and put it in a frame for on the wall.
I've really got the tatting bug now and can't wait to get going on another project.
I really am thrilled with it because its relatively simple to do and looks beautiful.
Here's a close up and you can see that some of the chains are a bit wonky. This is mainly due to not getting the tension right but with a bit of practice it should improve.
I would recommend anyone who has tried to tatt with a shuttle and not got the hang, to give needle tatting a try, its so much easier.
