Vintage handmade lace.

February 08, 2011

I would like to show you some of my vintage lace,
I keep it safely packed away because it is so delicate and rips easily.
This one is about 2 m. long and 50 cm. wide, could have been used to cover the hair.
  




Here is a close up of the handwork, there are some flowers and leaves that are applied separately
onto the work, I wonder how long it took to make this cover.

 
This is today's work, another sample seat cushion, after the O.K. I will need to make six of them.


A vintage table cover, with cherubs, perfect to keep out for Valentine's day.


Last week I found this amazing fabric and this is what I used it for.





A close-up of the material shows how the flowers and leaves are raised above the rest of the material.






Here are some details on the bolster, I know it doesn't really show it's a bolster under all that lace..
