Vintage Lace Brooches

By: Joey Bailey from Created in AWE

Add a touch of traditional fashion to your wardrobe by sewing your own lace jewelry. Learn to make a brooch and get classy with your vintage crafting.

Materials:

  • Thread to match your lace, or as closely as possible
  • Standard sewing needle
  • Large-eye sewing needle
  • Scissors
  • Jewelry pliers
  • 2 types of lace; ecru and ivory
  • Decorative brads and jewelry findings
  • Scrap piece of chain
  • Pin backings
  • Scrap of ribbon

Instructions:

 

  1. After gathering it tightly, I tied another knot at the end of the lace.

     
     
  2. I began by cutting about 18" of the ecru lace. I then tied thread to the beginning of the lace in a secure knot and sewed a gathering stitch near the top edge.


     
  3. Then, I sewed the ends together from top edge to bottom.

     
     
  4. The brads needed to be adjusted in order to be sewn, so I folded the brads over crossing in front of each other.  It is hard to see here, but it created a small double loop to sew onto the lace from the back.

     
     
  5. Then I attached the pearl strand (shortened by 3 pearls to fit, and chain to each side of the brad, and the lock and key to the chain.  I finished it with a pin backing.
