Ladybug wears a tatted heart edging as a tiara.
Dragonfly wears a tatted edging as a choker.
This is the most complex thing I have tatted so far! (Don't ask me how long it took :/) It is from the book Tatting by Cathy Bryant. At Hobby Lobby in Longmont, Colorado, I found Learn To Tat by Janette Baker. (And I had a 40% off coupon!) This book has some cute butterfly patterns that I want to make. They look fairly easy too :-) In Bryant's book, she teaches two different methods of tatting- mostly differences in how to hold the shuttle and move it in and out. Baker's book teaches "method two". I learned using "method one". But once you know how to make double stitches, the rest of Baker's instructions seem good for either method. It comes with a DVD too. Ladybug and Dragonfly (amigurumi patterns by Hattalahutta) are modeling some other things I have tatted. Those tatted edgings are also from Tatting by Cathy Bryant.
