Lace Cross Tutorial

This lace cross tutorial is specially for you, Littlehands. Hope you can follow my hurriedly made-up instructions :-) Have fun!

Materials:

1 pc 14 cm length eyelet lace (12 holes)
1 pc 19 cm length eyelet lace (16 holes)
1 pc 9 cm length ribbon
1 pc 25 cm length ribbon
1 ribbon rose
UHU glue


Method:

1. Bring both ends of the eyelet lace towards the centre and glue in place.
Make sure the holes are aligned properly.

2. Repeat the same for the other piece of eyelet lace.



3. Weave in the ribbons and adjust their lengths.












4. Position the 2 strips of lace into a cross and apply some glue at the centre.











5. Decorate the centre of the cross with the rose ribbon.
Add other embellishments (sequins, beads, etc.) if you like.

Oooooo, thank you very much!
It is nice to know that I have a special class to attend.
Yes, yes, it is easy to make the cross but I think I have to search for the hole-lace in Hong Kong first.
Thanks again! :)

Any time. Sorry the photos are not so great but I think they suffice the purpose. If you have difficulty getting the lace, let me know.
