25 Motif Challenge: Celtic Tatting A Design Journey on an Ancient Celtic Theme

I will be taking pre release orders for this book!


Cost is just $25.95 USD plus shipping. Send $ to my paypal account (replace the # with @. Add $6.50 for one copy to cover shipping to the USA. For overseas and multiple copy orders please email me privately for shipping cost.

Estimated release date - October 1st 2006. I have all the patterns and instructions completed. I'm just finishing up tatting some additional samples of the letters in solid and two tone colors. OK, it's 35 motifs, 10 more than 25 motifs... but it's hard to do alphabets with only 25 letters, and I really LIKE the other motifs too!

This book will be Color Laser printed with protective covers, comb bound 8.5 x 11 about 40 pages (estimated)

The first 50 pre paid orders will be entered in a drawing to win your choice of any one of the designs in the book tatted to order in your choice of colors. There will be three winners drawn. I already have 14 orders, and several have asked to be put on a list to be notified when it is ready.

This book contains Celtic Tatting instructions to create all 26 capital letters in the English Language alphabet, The Celtic Tatted Watchband/Bracelet (a new sample is pictured below), the Celtic Tatted Leaf, Spearhead necklace, Lantern Earrings, Hearts Edging, Two **VERY EASY** tatted necklaces, Victorian Shade Pull, and two crosses.

Celtic Tatted Watchband or Charm Bracelet

Here is a variation on the watchband pattern with Celtic Knots at both ends, a lobster clasp and charms on split jump rings. I finished this one today to give as a gift. This pattern would also make an awesome decoration for Renissance period clothing. Pattern of the knots appears to change when tatted in different color combinations.

I wanted to finish all 25 motifs in two weeks, and have reached my goal, and more. I'll still be posting photos of samples of the letters as I tat them in solids and multiple colors.
