Happy 4th of July!

To our international readers – I’d just like to say, “Happy Random Fourth Day of the Month!” I hope you have a wonderful day! Also, I’m working on gathering images of tatted flags from various countries/provinces/states for this pinboard: http://pinterest.com/natalekku/tatting-flags/ If you have links to any awesome flags or flag inspired tatting – please leave a link in the comments and I will make sure it gets added to the board!

For our USA readers – Happy Independence Day! I hope you are having a wonderful 4th of July! I get to enjoy spending time with family out at the lake today and under the stars with fireworks this evening.


If you know of a tatted piece that should be added to this board – please leave a comment and I’ll get it added!

Happy Tatting!

– Natalie

Mrs. Platts Baby Booties Revisited

Happy Mother’s Day!!!

And for my family, this is a very special Mother’s Day indeed; my eldest daughter is about to become a Mother for the first time which means I am about to become a GRANDMOTHER! I wanted to make her something very special to mark the day and I decided to tat her a pair of baby booties that she could keep and hand down to her daughter when the time came. I wanted something simple and elegant. Thankfully, my co-blogger Natalie had the perfect public domain pattern by Mrs. C.B. Platt, originally published in 1916. It is a great pattern but I had a hard time following parts of it. It was a week of tatting, untatting, cutting sections off, retatting, more cutting off, until I was just about ready to let the baby go barefoot forever. Instead, I tatted thru and decided to share my edit of the pattern. You can get a PDF copy by clicking here. Platt Baby Booties Edited

Hope you enjoy and again, Happy Mothers Day!



Edited 5/31/2013.  These were made in size 20 Lizbeth thread. When little Lexi was born, her Daddy tried to put them on her right away. Even though she was a teeni tiny thing, they barely fit. You should either make them in a larger thread or add some length to the sole. You can see that post Here.
