Friends, I have a large fabric stash, but I also have a very large lace stash as well. All sizes and colors rest in a box in my sewing room and tonight I decided to pick through it. I am in the process of turning this sweater below into a cardigan and I wanted some lace embellishment...
I was thinking something like this lovely sweater refashion at iCandy, but I was not finding any lace that really fit the idea. I continued searching through the lace and I found some very interesting remnants:
OK, this piece is fabulous, aside from the fact that someone took random pieces and flowers out from the centers, making it difficult to create a uniform piece. I looked at it for about ten minutes before getting out the scissors, and now I have this:
Some uniform pieces that could be added to various projects. I really adore this lace. It's made from something akin to embroidery floss so it feels durable. Here's where I am stuck - I don't think it would look quite right on the sweater, but I desperately want to use it for a project. I am thinking it might look lovely pieced together on a pillow? Or perhaps on a tote? Or on pockets of an apron?
The possibilities are endless! I am going to have to sleep on this, I think :)
Have a fabulous night, all!
