First, I made a pair of earrings:
Did you know it is ridiculously hard to take a picture of your own ear?
This was the best I could manage to try and give you an idea of how large they are.
I got the pattern here. The instructions for how to tat are a little less than helpful I think. I would have been totally confused if it was actually my first foray into needle tatting, but I thought the pattern was cute.
Making the earrings only took me about half an hour to do both, which just made me want to tat more so this afternoon I made a small piece of lace.
