Persisting with Inverted Tatting

I am still persisting with Inverted Tatting. This time I am using Mark Myers tutorial found here:

http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2004/joins/invertedtat.html

It took me several goes to get right but I think I am slowly getting it.  I left out the thrown ring but will try that in the next one :).


That's it for now.  Thanks for visiting my blog :).

Cheers,
Jenn :).

  1. Looks good! I haven't tried inverted tatting yet but have been intrigued by it. Which tutorial did you find the most helpful, easy to follow - Karen or Mark's?

    1. Thank you :). Both were very helpful but I found Karen's one helped me more because it was a video :). Mark's one was good too and was easy to follow as I already worked out the basics using Karen's tut. Hope that helps and makes sense :).

  2. It may be the look you wanted, but...most of the inverted tatting I have seen had longer connecting picots from the chain. That way, the tatting could take the shape of a leaf or a petal more smoothly.

    1. LOL yes I know it's not perfect or doesn't look the same as normal inverted tatted pieces :). I was running out of thread and had to make the connecting picots short. There was less than 2 inch of thread left when I was done :).

      Thanks for your input :). Still learning and will try make them longer in my next attempts :).

  3. Hello Jenn :-)
    I've just started to learn Inverted tatting too. Usha is helping me out a bit. I'd seen your InTatters mention of Karen's video & really liked it.
    I've tried a few leaves, etc. but the main snag is that I can't keep the outer chain in sync with the inner picots; it tends to want to draw/bend Away. Oh well, lots of trials on the anvil.
    Congratulations on your progress, Jenn :-)

    1. Thanks muskaan for visiting my blog and leaving a comment :). That's great that Usha is helping you :). Easier to learn when there's someone to show you :).

      Thank you :). I definitely need more practise and need to leave longer picots when tatting the inverted part :).

      We both will get there :). Looking forward to seeing your attempts on InTatters :).
