Holey Lace All Darned Up

I picked up this beautiful flowy cardigan with a gorgeous lace back for only $6 on clearance. Only problem was there were a few gaping holes in the lace. Should be an easy fix right? Six bucks isn’t that much of a gamble, so I handed over my dollars and headed home with my new top.

I’m posting this to show you that without much in the needle skills department you can save something that you might have thought was ruined.


one of the bigger holes

I threaded up a needle with white thread and got to work.

Can you see my needlework?



here's a large area that's been mended

I’m very happy with the end result. You can’t tell at all that 30 minutes ago this was a holey mess.

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
