Spending time on our website maryjos.com.can really pay off. There is always so much to look at and new stuff is added everyday. This past week I was checking out the pre-cut Lace Collars and Lace embellishment pieces on the sale page. It got me to thinking about all of the different ways and applications these Lace pieces could be used.
They are amazingly in-expensive (between 1.25 and 3.50). Here are a few of my thoughts, do remember in school we would add a lace collar to a sweater, or piece onto a plain dress?
Costumers, do you have a prim and proper play coming up? These would be perfect, and again so cheap! Mary Jo's also has some lace embellishments which could easily fit into a romantic room project, you could stitch onto a colored piece of fabric and create a dresser scarf, side tablecloth, or finish a trim for a curtain. It would be interesting to play around with the idea of applying them onto a colored lampshade, along the edge to create a Victorian look, they did love the lace during that romantic period. These beauties will not last. Check it out at Maryjos.com.
