Use thrifted lace and doilies and stitch up a skull tee for Halloween!
This gurl made herself a lace skull tee, 'cause ya know Halloween is comin' soon, and thought I'd share how I made it.
I was thinkin' I'd croshay a skull applique' but after lookin' at a pile of lace doilies in my sewing room, the lil' lightbulb in my head went poof!
I found this free printable pattern, it's actually a paper Halloween mask, for cutting out the lace skull.
You can use a thrifted lace curtain or old lace blouse. Whatever. Find a lace panel of some sort.
Then, I cut up some thrifted doilies for the eyes, nose and mouth and hand stitched them to the lace skull. I had a floral lace applique which I used as the hair.
I used embroidery floss to blanket stitch the skull to the front of the tee.
It's fun, floraly and easy!
