Beginner Kit : Carrickmacross Lace

Appliqueing organdy and embroidering on tulle...
It's a technique to make soft and light lace :)

It's a photo of cutting around appliqued organdy.
Miscutting tulle or sewing thread is critical so it is a little straining process.

  1. This is an eye opener. You could introduce tatting in there as well! On the edge?
    Beautiful work!
