The Flickr followers I chose, two individuals and one tatting group, appealed because they demonstrated personally interesting pieces/techniques, particularly noteworthy tatted designs or a breadth of photos:
MickChick831, Leah Mahar’s Flickr tatting photos personally intrigued me because she
- Embellishes motifs by incorporating beads
- Makes tatted jewelry

This brown medallion captured my attention immediately . It features
- Thoughtful placement of beads
- Delicate filigree beads that enhance overall design
- Elevated two old-fashioned concepts “cameo” and “locket” with an old-fashioned lace
- Rocked this tatted piece of jewelry with thread color choice and accompanying charm.
The Mad Tatter group has the most tatting group members (216) on Flickr. Significantly, they are shuttle and needle tatters, offer a range of content and are comprised of members from all over the globe. Tatting licensing differs widely. Tatting examples:
· Anita’s “Green Leaf Dragon” (from pattern “Flying Minor Norwegian Dragon” by Anne Bruvold).
· Pixellent’s “Aren’t you a little too entangled to be a Stormtrooper?”
totusmel (Pamela), a tatter with a strong sense of style, range of designs and sheer creativity, was a fitting last Flickr choice:
