And Old Lace

I love vintage fabrics and lace, maybe that's why I buy so much of it. So, I always have little leftover strips of the stuff laying around the house and one day I decided to tea-dye some, which might sound difficult but all it means is that I brewed some tea and put the lace down in the pot - you can see it here.

Then I used some fabric stiffener and tried to make it stiff enough to turn it into a bracelet. But it wasn't stiff enough. So then I spray painted the lace and that did it.

Next I sewed on a snap button so I could keep it on my wrist and Wah-Lah! New lace bracelet.

Now I'm thinking of trying this with a few more fabric pieces I have laying around the house.
