Craftster Pick of the Week – SisterTwisty’s Carrickmacross Lace

It's the Craftster Pick of the Week - brought to you by Mr X Stitch!

Time for another look at some of the great work featured in the forums at Craftster. Note: Although they’re the pick of this week, they may have appeared before this week.

SisterTwisty had a go at Carrickmacross Lace and did a great job of it!

“You applique muslin on to netting, couch it down, and then cut away the muslin that isn’t part of the design.  So I doodled a design of some birds holding a key, and over the weekend I made this:”

I think it’s a charming piece and an interesting form of embroidery. Does it inspire you to have a go?

See the original Craftster post here, and be sure to come back next week for another great pick from the forums!

    Thank you for featuring this!  It was really easy to make – if you can couch, the rest is pretty straightforward.
