For may years I have loved hand painted lace - It is just so pretty and just so shabby
But the cost of the supplies it a little prohibitive when you are living a frugal life so I experimented with what I already had ....... I had some failures but finally I came up with a process that not only looks amazing but is colour safe ( doesn't wash out)
My first project from one of my tiny little hand painted lace doilies was to make a pin cushion for the pin cushion club in the Let's Get Stitched and More Magazine.
And this is what I came up with. Isn't it adorable ? The full pattern and kits will be available in the April Issue which will include already painted little doilies or you can purchase a kit of supplies and watch my LIVE online class in the Let's Get Stitched and More Subscribers Lounge during April and paint your very own.
They became so addictive that I just couldn't stop making them ! These 10 became cuff bracelet pin cushions. They all found new homes at the Let's Get Stitched retreat a few weeks ago but there are more on the way in a few days and they will be offered for sale to new loving homes in my ETSY store next week.
The magazine is great value with 8 - 10 projects in every issue ! Including Quilting, Sewing, Embroidery, Kids Crafts, Quick Crafts, Paper Crafts, Beading and much much more. It's just $8.95 per month or $60 for a full year ! Subscription details can be found HERE.
