Hi everyone, I am Shari Fuller from Thimbles and Acorns. For my 1920s Girl's Combination Underwear,I found this pretty 1/2” wide cotton cluny beading lace that came threaded with a rather nondescript white ribbon. Because the underwear design is rather plain, I wanted to dress the lace up a bit by adding a little color and a dainty ribbon bow at the center front of the neckline.
Beading lace (not to be confused with beaded lace which is embellished with or made from actual beads) is a type of lace that has spaces worked into the design for weaving in lace or other small trims. Most beading laces come without ribbon, but some, like the one I am working with, come with a ribbon already woven in. While this may be convenient, the color may not be what you are looking for. For some beading laces, it is simply a matter of weaving your ribbon in and out of the holes, but for most woven or crocheted laces, like the cluny one I am working with, there is a bit of a trick to weaving in the ribbon that I will show you in this video.
Are you ready? Follow along to see how it's done!
