I had a ton of little lace pieces left over from my lace/ elastic thread and each piece was so pretty I did not just want to throw them away. I have this plain pillow and I thought it could use a small pop of color.
2.) Basic sewing supplies +hand sewing needle
3.) Item to embellish
Thread your needle and tie a knot at the end.
*The flowers that were already in place on this pillow got in the way and made it difficult to sew the lace.
To avoid this I pinned down a large portion of whatever area I was working in before I began.
Once the area was pinned down I did a running stitch, check out a good explanation of a running stitch here: http://www.sewing.org/html/handstittch.html
*You can use which ever hand stitch works the best for whatever you are embellishing.
When you are through tie a knot at the end of the stitch so it will stay closed.
This is really easy and I actually did it while I was watching TV and I repeated the quick running stitch a few times and before I knew it I had a whole new pillow.
