Lace Caddy – EXCLUSIVE to Scrimpy’s Craft Boutique

I ordered this stunning kit from Amanda who owns Scrimpy’s Craft Boutique

Her store can be found on facebook¬†Scrimpy’s Craft Boutique

She sells the most amazing kits and I have bought almost all of them as they are great quality and fantastic value for money.

With this kit which was made by Fernli Designs¬†exclusively made to Amanda’s specifications to house her stunning laces and trims.

When you get the kit it has 6 pieces base, handle/centre partition and 4 sides

I chose to decorate mine using paper and I chose a very simplistic wood grain effect

This was the very first stage of decorating.

I then used gorgeous trims and laces from Amanda’s shop to decorate and it worked out beautifully

The base I added 2 panels of felt then added a 3 larger panel over the whole base, I then added 1.5cm cubes for the feet and I added felt to the feet also to give it a more finished professional look.

I used a chiffon styled gathered trim first to add a softness to the caddy and I then added a beautiful guipure trim which has beautiful and delicate detail and to finish it off and also to tie in the pearl headed pins I have used on my spools I chose to add a 6mm pearl flatback trim around also.

My spools once I have some cream seam binding in stock that will be added to each spool

Overall I am extremely pleased with how it turned out and cannot wait for my next kit.

Lots of love and craft hugs Karen x
