Give your fabrics an instant update with lace! Whether you’re trying to cover a stain, make something new again, or you just want to add a special touch, lace is a versatile option that looks so lovely. Even better, you don’t have to know how to sew to add it to your fabrics; you just need Aleene’s OK To Wash-It! This permanent fabric glue dries clear, flexible and washable, making it perfect for fabric items we use and wear every day. Craft Box Girls will show you three easy, creative ideas for upcycling your fabrics with lace and OK To Wash-It!
- Fabric gift bag
- Lace trims of choice
- Lace fabric sheets of choice
Before getting started on your placemats upcycle project, make sure the placemats are washed (if they’re brand new) and ironed smooth.
Measure and cut lace ribbon/trim to fit along the tops and bottoms of your placemats.
Add a line of OK To Wash-It along the edge of the placemat and press the ribbon in place. Depending on how wide your ribbon is, you might want to add glue to the underside of the top of the ribbon as well. Let dry completely.
Once the glue is dry, your upcycled placemats are ready to impress guests at your next dinner party!
To upcycle a fabric gift bag with lace sheets, cut the sheets (if needed) to fit the width of the bag. For this project, you’ll want to layer several sheets along the length of your bag.
Once you’re happy with the placement of the lace sheets, glue each in place on the bag.
Cut a strand of ribbon to finish the top edge of the lace and glue in place. Let everything dry completely.
Your upcycled lace gift bag will be the prettiest at the party! We wouldn’t be surprised if it gets opened first!
Sometimes all you need is just a touch of lace to make something new again! A simple strand of lace can make a pretty apron pretty fabulous.
Measure and cut a strand of lace to fit along the length of the waist and apron ties, then simply glue in place on your apron with OK To Wash-It. Let dry completely.
Now that you have a fabulous apron to wear, it’s time to whip up something creative in the kitchen!
