I tried another Pinterest idea the other day and I've yet to decide whether it was a flop or not. I fell in love with this lace cuff and decided I must make one for myself! The link on Pinterest didn't send me to a tutorial, but I thought it would be easy enough.
Here's what I did:
Gathered the lace I had on hand. All I had was this super skinny lace, so maybe that was my problem.
I tried starching the lace with fabric stiffener, but it didn't stiffen the lace enough to my liking. I ended up dipping it in mod podge.
I wrapped the lace around a bottle of cooking spray to give it a circular shape and then laid it on wax paper to dry. Once it was dry, it was too big for a cuff. It wouldn't stay on my wrist.
On to plan B.
When wrapping the lace around my wrist it was too small to be a bracelet for me. So, I hand sewed a snap onto each side and made it into a small bracelet for my little girl.
It looks really cute on her, but definitely not what I was envisioning.
Maybe I should try again with a thicker piece of lace?
