I have boxes of vintage table runners and doilies....And lace, oh my, it is spilling out of every box in my craft room. I have to start using it before my son sells it all at the BIG (estate) SALE for a quarter a box lol!
I am going to be a vendor at the Fancy Flea November 2 with Barr Display and we will have tons of dress forms at the show. We don't want the forms standing around naked so, I have been busy making scarves and altering jean jackets (I will show you the jackets on a future post) to dress them.
I took some of my lace and table runners and hand dyed them. The tan Rit dye turns some fabrics a great pinkish color.
This is a vintage table runner
That has hand appliqued lace from a vintage wedding dress
Here's another vintage table runner that I sewed in half lengthwise.....
.......and added lace
Here's a really fluffy one with 14" embroidered lace netting
I made a scarf like this for myself and when I wore it out one night people stopped me to ask where I got it......Al-righty then.....I might be on to something?
Here's all of the girls.....A little over dressed I think!
They are headed with their scarves to the Fancy Flea. Since these are loaded with my precious lace I'm going to price them at $25.
Look through your stash, pull out your vintage table runners and lace then have some fun!!
