This is needlelace, not tatting, but equally time-consuming and equally beautiful.

And if you ever wondered how to wind a bobbin:


  1. Thank you, Gina! I've read about needle lace, but I've never seen anyone make it before. It's fascinating!

    I'm also glad you found a video on winding a bobbin... I just found my bobbin lace kit yesterday when I was working in my sewing room. You wouldn't believe the treasures I've found!

  2. I think needlelace is so pretty. I've done vintage doily edging that had needlelace in the middle of a circular tatted motif. It was a spider web design coming off of the picots facing the center. Very simple compared to yours, but I thought the pattern was pretty.
