Teneriffe Lace Designs And Instructions Spiral Bound Book Republication Originally Published in 1904! 40 images and detailed instructions to guide you in the fascinating but simple needle art of Teneriffe lace making! Up for the enjoyment of your creative muse is this wonderful antique wheel lace reference guide! This HISTORIC item has line drawings and over 40 photos to assist you in making the most deliciously delicate sol lace included in its 50 pages! (Original is NOT for sale) This item is a great resource for those who are historical reenactment enthusiasts, students of historical clothing, fiber and textile arts, etc! An excerpt: "The following ideas have been gathered from the best makers of women's apparel both here and abroad; they are taken from work which is being done in constantly increasing amount and are not the mere speculation of what the wheels or medallions might be used for. A medallion made of fine wool is one of the garnishes for dresses and coats that promises to become extremely popular. A beautiful effect is obtained by doing the knotting in silk. A ground work laid in white silk and the pattern woven in black; this especially in the close woven patterns, makes a rich ornament for garments of black silken material, and enables one to possess an exclusive trimming which cannot be purchased ready for use. Rosettes made of closely twisted silk woven in the more solid designs form a beautiful trimming for evening waists. Irregular outlines may be produced by leaving out some of the threads in laying the ground, as suggested in some of the designs. Borders are made of lace wheels for cushion tops, doilies, scarfs, centre pieces, tray covers, bureau scarfs, curtains, etc. For a Baby's Cap. Baste the wheels on a muslin pattern, and after joining them remove the pattern and sew the crown into the straight front. Finish off the edges with lace. Rows of small wheels make a beautiful insertion for underwear; and wheels of various sizes are readily adapted to all garments requiring a trimming of lace. " There are also numerous designs for articles of wearing apparel-such as capes, collars of various shapes and dimensions, yokes, stoles, etc. There are also pattern of borders for gowns, for curtains bureau scarfs, and some of the prettiest are those for handkerchiefs. In fact there is scarcely an article for which patterns may not be obtained utilizing lace wheels as the principal element in the design, and in combination with braid and stitches. Among the articles used in making Teneriffe lace may be mentioned linen thread, crochet cotton, mercerized cotton, Saxony wool, embroidery silk, etc." It contains instructions for making the motifs shown in the listing collage that were so popular in the late 1800's to early 1900's era. The degree of needlework difficultly ranges from beginner to expert levels and it guides you from first attempt to designing your own patterns! I hardly know where to begin! This item goes into great detail on the range of devices that can be used, or created by you, to make this delicate lace. If you'd rather purchase the contemporary lace making device (plus the silks, wools and needles) they can be found on eBay by doing a general search for said items. You just have to look a little bit! :) This is certainly a wonderful source of historically valuable designs and instructions which are sure to inspire the creative lace artist in you! This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful craft instructional revealing our heritage from early America and European cultures!
