Create a lovely Vintage Lace Scarf for your wardrobe with this free how-to series from Beverly's!
Materials for Scarf:
Flatfold Lace, 2 pieces - 9" x 80" and 9" x 36"
Strong brewed tea in small plastic cup
(Save the teabag"¦you will need it!)
7/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, 3 coordinating prints
Fabric Strips, 2"x20", 2 coordinating prints
Brew tea in small plastic cup. Allow to cool.
Fold fabric into double layer. Use teabag to tea dye by dabbing bag directly onto fabric (work on protected surface). Dip teabag back in tea to re-saturate as needed. If teabag
is not useable, a sponge brush can be substituted.
Flip fabric and dye the opposite side.
Cut fringe on each end of one piece of lace, using scissors, about 5" deep.
Cut second piece of lace into 6"x9" pieces. Layer and cut fringe on all pieces about 5" deep.
Adhere 3 layers of fringed lace over each fringed end of scarf. Fold long sides to center back and glue for a narrow end. Repeat for other end of scarf. Your ends will be about 4 " wide.
Cut a piece of ribbon about 10" long. Adhere over raw edges at top of lace, wrapping around back and folding top raw edge under. Repeat for other end of scarf.
Create twisted fabric and ribbon flowers and adhere as desired on one end of scarf.
