Chocolate and Cream.
That is, accessories made with more chocolate brown ribbon and creamy off-white lace. I got the idea from some of the lace cuffs from last week’s craft. From the left is a pair of choker necklaces, then a headband on top, a hair clip below it, and a small broach.
The chokers were made by cutting a length of the lace about long enough to wrap around my neck plus a little extra for hemming and breathing room, super important. I cut a second piece of lace and sewed the two together along their top edges. The chocolate ribbon covers this seam. All I had to do then was hem the ends, add some snaps and make and attach a bow. Then repeat all to make a second one.
For the headband, I did the same thing with the lace as the chokers. It’s actually two layers of lace pieces sewn together with two rows of stitches down the center. This created a channel that I could slide a plain metal headband through. Then I added the ribbon. I also wrapped ribbon around the ends of the head band to hide the raw edges of lace and to make it cuter and more comfortable. A couple more bows and it was done.
The hair clip and the broach was made pretty much just like the lace applique broaches I made several weeks ago. Here’s the tutorial if you missed it. Again all it took to finish them was a few chocolate ribbon bows.
On another note, I’m going on a short hiatus from blogging here. Just for the week, I’ll be back in time for the blog hop this Saturday. I just wanted to mention it so no one thinks I’ve “gone quiet” again. It’s just for the week and not several months. I’ll be working on a few projects, including ones for this blog. Look forward to it.
