Welcome to my World of Tatting

Introductions are SO boring...

Hi, my name is Mary.  I like to tat, and this is my blog about my tatting adventures.  I find tatting to be a calming creative outlet and blah blah blah.

Actually, the only thing I want to make clear in my introductory post is that I do not tat like your grandmother.  I am just guessing that your grandmother tats because everyone I have talked to has a grandmother who tats. Or great-grandmother.  Someone wrinkly.

Instead of making doilies and lace edging for hankies, I make badass steampunk and Victorian-inspired jewelry.  I am 23 and haven't yet reached that time in my life where I need a doily under the vase in the foyer.  Hell, I don't even have a foyer.  I have taken this "old lady" craft and turned it into some badass art that you can wear, and people will compliment you for being so awesome.

For example, this is probably what most people who tat look like:

And then there's me:

You can't prove that I don't look like that, so don't try.


  1. Best intro ever!
