I've collected lace. I love the stuff, black stretchy is my favorite but I've collected bunch of different kinds. Stretchy, non-stretchy, stiff-ish, black, white, yellowbluebrownpinketc, some sexy, some girly, some baby-ish.

Often I use it for undies (tehee), and I've used it on things like pencil cases (which was made entirely of black leather with a strip of black lace - many comments about the 'sexiest pencil case ever' - haha!), but I'm not sure how else to deplete this enormous stock.


Doesn't have to be clothing, can be anything.
Photos are appreciated, but comments are welcome as well!

If you have any beige or white pieces, you could give 'em to me.  Cheesy

Here's some other (better?) ideas:
- Embellishments on shirts (i.e. lace around the cuff and collar of a blouse or cardigan, put ruffles on a shirt made of matching material lined with lace)
- "Victorian" cuffs (basically a strip of fabric with ruffles of lace on each edge)
- Lace pillowcases (stretch fabric, with maybe a ruffle of lace around the edge? or is that overkill?)
- Turn them into little works of art -> http://brazosvalleybride.com/2012/lace-embroidery-hoops/
- Make a lacey lampshade! Usually doilies are used but I don't see why stretch lace wouldn't work.

Hope they help. Smiley

since lace is very "in" right now, I'd use it to embellish/hem apparel--I've also hoarded quite a bit of lace in the past few months lol.
look on Pinterest for some DIY inspiration:
