My First Tatting Designs

I've been taking a class in tatting design with Sharon Briggs and have been doing lots of experimenting.  I'm not an experienced tatter so I'm finding this a bit challenging but am having lots of fun.  Part of one of the designs I created looked like a king's crown (to me) so I challenged myself to create the crown and draw out the pattern on the free software presented to us by Sharon.  The software is Serif's Draw Plus SE and is a free download. Here are some photos.

King's Crown

If you are a tatter and haven't tried designing your own pattern, try it.  You may be surprised at what
you come up with.

have tried and tatted my own pattern's only thing is i can't write it down well or draw the pattern. i don't have a program yet to help with this must get one for the future.but i know what you mean it is full filling when you have done a good pattern.

oh this is lovely Deanna, I haven't a clue how to even start tatting and it looks so addictive that perhaps I shouldn't try! That's a good idea about embroidering over those lines, thing is I am so wierd that in my head that piece is spoiled so I probably won't be able to ever get motivated to do anything to it.
