10 Ways to Wear Eyelet Lace

Eyelet lace is made from cotton and has that distinctive look; the defined holes that make up the pattern which have then been sewn so they don’t pull apart the rest of the fabric and make the pattern stand out from the backing. These holes are what are known as the ‘eyelets’ of the lace, hence the name. This versatile fabric can be used for a variety of purposes. Here are just ten of them:

  1. Dresses and blouses: Because eyelet lace can be purchased by the yard or yard and because it doesn’t have a backing net, it’s easy to work with and fix, even for sewer novices. It lends a certain femininity to a garment without being see-through or overly stuffy, and with its clean patterns and plain bottoms, it makes the dresses easy to wear for adults and children alike.
  2. Ring Bearer Pillows: Your little one will look adorable walking down the aisle with an eyelet pillow. A bow secures the rings to the pillow, and since the eyelet lace isn’t all frilly, but is still dainty, it’s the perfect compromise for a little boy who already needs to be in a fancy suit.
  3. Curtains: Eyelet lace is a pretty way to brighten up that window. It will allow light in and give you privacy at the same time and is a nice alternative to plain fabric. Especially sweet for a boy’s or little girl’s bedroom, it looks great with ribbons to tie up, or when left to hang upright.
  4. scrapbook: Yes, you can use eyelet lace, either real or paper, when you’re creating great scrapbook pages. You can use it directly, or you can paint or color over a piece to capture the pattern on your paper. It can be used on a variety of different pages as well as invitations, thank you cards, baby announcements and all sorts of other paper craft projects.
  5. Tablecloths and napkins: This versatile fabric is ideal for lovely casual tablecloths, or you can use just a little eyelet to accent another fabric to make tablecloths and napkins for more formal occasions.
  6. Cushions and decorative pieces: Much like a wedding ring pillow, using this lace to make full-size pillows is a breeze. The patterns are delicate but strong enough to draw attention, and the eyelet lace adds a certain charm to any project. It is easy to sew and can be easily accented with different lace.
  7. Headbands: What girl doesn’t like a headband that won’t dig into her head and be uncomfortable? You can use the fabric for the entire headband or just as an accent on one. Jazz up that headband with an eyelet lace flower for a charming touch of fun.
  8. table runners: Eyelet lace can be used as a runner, either with a tablecloth or just to be a cute accent on your dining table. Charming in a country-style setting, but can fit into any decor.
  9. Necklaces: If you’re making your own clothing, you can buy eyelet lace pieces that are already shaped to your neck, just sew them together for that unique look.
  10. Miscellaneous preparation: Think outside the box. You can use this versatile piece of fabric for bunting, banners, and wall hangings. Large pieces that look like doilies can take on new life when you hang them around the house or incorporate them into a piece of art. They can be painted, shaped, cut and manipulated to create a unique work of art.

Eyelet lace has many different uses; It’s versatile and pretty enough for a host of projects, big or small. What will you use it for?
