Theme Post: Tatting! (It's still October somewhere!)

I've been knitting and crocheting for 6 years now and I decided 2009 was the year I learned something new. So I turned my attention to tatting and managed to make a pretty little headband in time for my Halloween outfit.

This is really all you need: A shuttle and a ball of thread!

There are a few tutorials and how-to videos out there, but Jen's Tat-ra Sutra was the easiest to follow, in my opinion, with lots of pictures and easy instructions.

I made my headband based on this pattern, and I'm really happy with how it turned out! Here's how it looked with my final outfit, paired with a flower hairclip (a combination of knitting and crochet):

Are there any other lolita tatters out there? I've been looking through patterns online for lace designs that I could incorporate into lolita and would love to have more links!
