Did you know your machine can make lace masks? I know, it surprises me too sometimes.

It's a large freestanding lace piece with a few organza applique pieces.



Yay Mardi Gras!




Once it's done stitching, I just added a ribbon to tie it on and it was all set!

Looks absolutely beautiful!!! I wanted to do a masquerade party last year for Halloween but ran out of time. I was thinking about doing it this year. I found a really beautiful dress on one of those sites that carries adult costumes. (Not like *skanky* adult costumes just regular ones.)  I'm going to copy it and try and improve on it for next year!

Thanks for the idea!!
Cheers

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

This is awesome! It's such a delicate alternative to over the top crazy masks (which is what I'm making for myself!). Are you doing Mardi Gras in NOLA? The Krewe Do Craft parade looks like it's going to be great!

I designed the mask myself, and then it was "digitized" into a machine embroidery file. A big embroidery machine then stitches it out, with a little help from me with placing the organza pieces. It's actually pretty simple Smiley

I really like it? Do you have a pattern for it? If so please let me know. I would like to make one for myself. Please let me know. I would really appreciate it, if you would do that for me.

you have such great ideas, i love following things you do on this forum!! thank you for enriching my life Smiley one thing i was wondering is: did you use a water-solvant(is that how you write it? Cheesy) stabilizer or some sort of tear away? this is very pretty and i'm thinking that maybe i could try my hands on this! i just bought a wacom for my computer and will hopefully be able to do so much things i couldn't do with just a mouse on my embroidery program!

Yup! Water soluble stabilizer is the best way to go with lace. Tear away won't work too well because it's impossible to tear it out of all those small lace fill areas!
