I felt as though I had already shared this vintage craft find with you already, but I found no photos or posting of it, so I guess I've just looked at it too many times! I found this in with some other vintage supplies and fell in love. It came to me still wrapped in cellophane, but I had to open it to play with it.
The "lacy edge" is a teeny tiny chain stitch, and is oh so delicate and lovely. I'm looking for the perfect project to use it for. It must be special, and just right. Oh, and if the trim itself wasn't enough, the packaging is equally wonderful.
Don't you just love that you could send in for scrap pieces for your child to make doll clothes? So very charming.
Even though I'm not quite ready to sew something with this, and I'm certainly not going to mail it to any of you...it's mine! MINE! (sorry...I got all trim power hungry for a moment...) Where was I? Oh, yes...I want to virtually share this pretty bias trim with you.
The strips you see above, and in the first image (running along the left of the photo) were made with a scanned image of the trim. I've made it into a PNG file, which has a transparent background so you can lay the trim over any image. Use it on your blog, your scrapbooking...anything! It's a fairly big image too, for more flexibility. Have fun, and I'd love to see this vintage craft in action!
