What I Did with the Leftovers

This is what I did with the leftover lace from the Lace Panelled Cardigan I made.

I cut about five semi-circles from the lace, and scrunched up the bottom of them┬áto make a petal shape. I stitched all these together to make a flower corsage-y thing. I then stitched it onto a bag, and made a cute clutch! J’adore.

PS- You must excuse my half-on half-off manicure!

Panelled Lace Cardigan

YOU WILL NEED a cardigan, a sheet of lace, a zipper, scissors and thread.

Firstly, cut the lace into the same shape as the back panel of the cardi, but about 2cm bigger. Fold over the lace as you sew along, hemming as you go. Sew the top and down the sides but not the bottom. Slit up the middle and attatch the zipper, then you can hem the bottom. It does take a while, but is completely worth it!
