This is the finished piece I posted about in progress awhile back in Pretty Lace. It’s a very simple lace motif, added to a hair comb with some Swarovski Elements for embellishment. I wore this for the Bridal Show that my Sister over at Vintage Wedding Gems did recently.
There are so many things that can be done to customize this. I can use reclaimed, vintage thread from old doilies, bedspreads or table cloths. I can also make it in new thread in dozens of different colors. It can be added to a clip or button loops instead of a comb. And embellishments are only limited by your imagination!
Yes, it’s there. I know it’s there. No I’m not going to dye it. And no, I’m not going to pull it out. It’s already fine enough to begin with. So, now that we’ve gotten that over with…
This tape turned out really nice. Doesn’t hurt that it’s my favorite color. After blocking, I went ahead and did some starching to give it a little substance. Then I attached some elastic and single crocheted over it to cover that up. I’d like to do one with some beading in it maybe. Plus, there are several other different types of tape that I would like to try out as well.
I’m going to do a few of these for my Sister to take to a Bridal Fair she’s got coming up. Go visit her over at Vintage Wedding Gems to find out more about it! Right now I’m working on washing out some old doilies and table runners so I can re-purpose the thread for new projects. I think I’ll do a few of these in that thread.
I did get started back on the Granny Squares today. I’ll post that tomorrow.
