Tatted Sassy Turtle

I have been taking online tatting lessons from Teri Dusenbury . Her work is simply stunning. I was amazed at her talent; drooling whenever I saw her tatted and beaded creations. Teri used to have a blog where she shared numerous free tatting patterns (her own designs as well as vintage ones). For a long time, I did not know what happened to her until recently when I "bumped" into her on Facebook. I showed interest in learning from her and she asked me whether I wanted to be an online student (again "free of charge"). Teri has been extremely patient with me. Now I am so confident in being able to manipulate 130 - 150 inches of thread/cord and doing finger tatting. Yes, you heard that right - finger tatting with beads. Here is my first completed project in its entirety - SASSY TURTLE. I have started naming my turtles now.


  1. Congratulations on your beautiful tatted turtle, Sunela! Teri is a very talented lady. I'm happy that you were able to connect with her and take lessons.

  2. That's beautiful, Sunela! Well done!

  3. Gorgeous, Sunela. Beautiful work. I'm so glad you fround her to get that wonderful challenge.
