Overview

Lace is the stuff of dreams, that makes a wedding gown breathtaking, a shirt romantic, a doily so pretty. Its amazing texture and exquisite, intricate designs give simple crafts a new attitude and a personal touch. Beginner projects use an array of storebought laces—all described and illustrated so you'll recognize them instantly at the shop-that you can hand dye, decoupage, paint, stencil, and stamp to create clothes and decorative home projects. Is there a wedding in the future? Stitch a flower girl dress with rosettes, hair wreaths, a garter, and gift bag. Adorn a home with lacy pillows, quilts, tablecloths, and embroidered napkins. Plus: vests, Christmas ornaments, a toddler bonnet, and more, all shown in color photographs. 8 1/2 X 10.
