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.

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.
