My local thrift stores have an abundance of lace fabrics, tablecloths and hankerchiefs. Does anyone have any ideas on how to use lace fabric?

I'd like to buy them if I had good ideas for projects! And I hate to see any kind of fabric go to waste!

Thank you!

I buy lace and make produce/grocery tote bags with them. I also make dress up wedding veils for little girls pretend play closets. . . and I use them for photo mats, coverings for ring bearer pillows. . . .

re design

My daughter ripped her denim skirt . I pulled out a book I had on Denim Redesign. Together with cotton fabric, lace, pretty buttons and beads, we created a totally new skirt. It took me 1 hr to put together.
She loves it and has been wearing it since.
Now I am hooked on re design!

You could put lace around the edging of towels and give them as gifts with some nice soap, etc.
