Hand Sew: Lace embellishments

March 23 , 2013 by: Ryan DIY

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.


Supplies needed:

1.) Lace

2.) Basic sewing supplies +hand sewing needle

3.) Item to embellish


Step 1)

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.


Step 2)

Once the area was pinned down I did a running stitch, check out a good explanation of a running stitch here:

            *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.
