Many of you, I know, like myself just love
old lace especially when it's
really old - and it is such a pleasure to work with it too.
Recently I decided to make a Jewellery trifold Wrap/Keepsake
so I pulled out a number of old pretty cotton laces (crocheted and netted), a sweet doily, a shiny Damask napkin, some cream sari ribbon, some felt for lining, a chiffon rose, some
satin applique pieces, seam binding,
faux pearls and a sweet Stirling silver Marcasite
and pearl jewellery finding
this was the result.
A crazy patch worked creation over the top of the
napkin (which I dyed) and
which I lined with felt
and edged all the way around with some sari ribbon first
and then I over sewed this with some pretty fine lace.
Pockets for jewellery or your favorite cabinet cards,
love notes or postcards.
and this is how it looks when folded.
It now lives in my Etsy Shop
if you wish to see more details.
