All about Stocking Laces
This is a Stocking Lace
Stocking Laces - As the name says, they are ideal for any kind of stocking - not to say you cannot use other lace types - but these are the traditional kind. Elastic, one straight edge or ruffle edge on both sides and always a smaller ribbon. You can use them to decorate bowls or other objects. Let your creativity guide you!
The ones with ruffle edge on both sides - stitch those up in the middle with an elastic yarn and you have a wedding band for your thigh, all ruffled up - or stitch them like that onto over knee socks or stocking and you are ready to go. For the ones with a straight edge, they can be stitched onto another edge easily. The straight edge is slightly thicker and can thus theoretically be worked with a sewing machine. Just try it!
