Lace Video Parts 1 & 2 – Lace on Clothing

DIY 3:  Lace on Shorts

So I had so much fun w/ lace, I started to incorporate it into pretty much everything around the house.  Here I added it onto the ends of shorts!

Materials:
-Lace
-Shorts
-Needle
-Thread
-Scissors

If you’re new to sewing choose a thread that is more tonal – or the same color as your shorts. That way your stitches blend in. Here we wanted a contrast pop – so we chose a white thread so we had to sew more neatly.

Lace Video Part 2 – Crocheted Lace Earrings

This summer flew by so fast.  I went to several weddings and was inspired by all the beautiful lace details.  I wanted to take these touches and incorporate it into something I could wear everyday.

DIY 4:  CROCHETED LACE EARRINGS

Image

 
Materials:
-Elmers glue
-Crocheted Lace
-Earring hooks
-Pliers
-Plastic container of water
-Paint brush

Steps:
1.  Choose a lace with repeating patterns.  It’s best to use crochet lace because it is thicker and more sturdy. This will help the lace earrings hold its shape better after you treat it with the water/glue mixture.

2.  When you mix the glue into the water, make sure there is more glue than water so the lace will be more durable and less flimsy after the mixture dries.

3.  Remember not to lay the earrings to dry on paper plates because then it’ll stick to the plate! Use plastic or glass instead.  Also, squeeze out the excess glue water by pressing it against the container.

4.  Once the earring pieces are dried – use a plier to loop the earring hook through the lace to create an earring.

Lace Video Part 1 – Lace Sneakers

A simple way to add lace and a fresh twist to your sneakers.  This is a way to make your old shoes look new!

Image

Materials
-Colored lace
-Old laces
-Tape
-Pliers (optional)

Steps:

1.  Take out the shoe lace.  Use the existing shoe lace as a guide to help measure the length of the new lace.

2. You can use pliers to help you get the lace through the eyelets.

3.  Make sure as you are weaving the lace through, each end of the lace on either sides are of equal length.

4. Another tip is to wrap tape at the ends of the lace.  This makes weaving the lace through so much faster…with this trick – you then won’t need pliers! 🙂

Lace Video Part 1 – Crocheted Lace Shoes

In this project, we are going to work with a material that pretty much changed my family’s life. The lace over sneaker was what sparked a partnership between the three remarkable people that started our company and went on to create a huge trend in the 80’s…

Lace has continued to be an important detail for our Jellypop brand because it brings a feminine flair to our shoes that sets us apart from all the other brands.

I’m going to show you how you can also incorporate all types of lace into your shoes.

Project 1

Project 2

Materials
-Crocheted lace
-Mini clothes pins
-Elmers / Fabric Glue
-Paint Brush
-Plastic plate / tray

Steps:
1. Take a lace piece that could fit the side of your shoe.

2. Take Elmers glue and a paint brush and glue it on. I have used clothing pins to ensure that the crocheted lace stays in place as it is glued and as it dries. Lace pumps take one hour to dry

3. For the second project in the video, I am using clear fabric glue to ensure that the glue does not show on the thin black lace. I love the detail of lace on a platform, so in this project I have glued it on between the seam of the platform and upper of the shoe. Paint on the glue and wrap it around the platform. Trim the ends.

Tropical Shoes DIY Part 2 – Beaded Braid

My family and I went on a Luau as well and one of the projects at the Luau was braiding leaves into a headband and bracelet. To make these braids last longer, I’m going to bring tropical printed fabrics again. These are perfect to cut long strips into and tie w/ a jute rope to add that contrast of vibrant colors and natural organic materials.

To give this more of a unique look, you can sew in some colorful beads…

Materials
– Beads
– Fabric
– Leather string
– Scissors
– Tape

Steps:
1. Cut the fabric into strips and take 2 of them along with a thin piece of neutral rope.
2. Tape the end of the pieces together and on the table for better control.
3. Begin to braid! Make sure the print is on the top as you braid.
4. Tie a knot at one end of the fish string and start sewing on the beads throughout the braid.

You can sew it onto your shoe as a detail, wear it as a bracelet…you can even make it longer as a headband. Very versatile!
