									How to Darn Lace for Bathroom Accessories

Lace makes attractive material no matter where you add the designs. If
you have already made decorative towels, you are ready to add your lace
and serger edges. If you have not stitched your decorative towels, you
will need to learn the steps to get started. Otherwise, you can add lace
trimming and serger edges to finish towels you have purchased. Terry
cloth towels look great when lace and serger finishes are attached. To
get started, continue reading.

How to get started with lace trimming:
To get started you will need a plain or unadorned towel, and lace edges,
as well as a galloon, i.e. the ornamental trimming lace. The narrow bands
of embroidery should consist of lace, braids, or thread colors of gold
and silver. Preferably, you want lace. Make sure that the material is
machine washable. Purchase the medium-weight lace, such as the taffeta,
satin, or polyester.

How to create lace trimming for bathroom towels:
Once you have your materials gathered: (1) use the decorative trimming
and cut an inch of the lace, cutting until it extends considerably a
distance of your towel width. About a half-inch, fold the fabric under,
folding it at the ends. In the desired position, pin the lace to your
towel. You want the pins over the lower borders or edges. (2) Along the
ends you have folded, stitch. Stitch along the edges of your scallop
sides, keeping your stitching in a straight line. (3) Use the edges of
your lace and repeat step one. You want the lace this time to fasten to
the lower borders. Along the end folds, stitch and continue to the upper
borders. Keep in a straight line. You should be finished at this point,
unless you need to finish the upper borders of your lace. In this
instance, on the opposite side of the bias band, cover it. Now you are
ready to create your over-lock finished edges.

How to create serger, finished edges:
You will need plain material and a special needle, such as the tapestry.
In addition, you will need nylon, combined threads of wool, contrasting
threads of normal value, etc to get started.

How to stitch:
(1)   Your serger should be set at three-threads, to equalize your
stitch, which creates the serger. Both of your loopers should be threaded
as well. Use your nylon threads and common thread. Heave the thread
through your needle and prepare your stitch so that it is set to desired
widthwise position. The length should be set at least one (mm) (2) along
the selvages, start stitching whilst holding in place the tail string
tight. You want to avoid trimming the edge of your cloth. The tails
should be left at the extremity of your cloth. (3) Now, you will need a
stitching needle. Thread it. About one inch and begin weaving your
tapestry needlework so that it falls beneath the stitches at your serger.
The tail strings may have extra length, which you will need cutting tools
designed for sewers to cut it off.
(2)   Once you finish your lace and serger, you may want to add a few
other bathroom accessories to set off your patterns. Try considering
creative towel hooks, rings, and bars.
A variety of rings, hooks, and bars are available online, including the
medallion designs, which comprise bold backs. The stylish designs will
offset your new-laced towels. You can also find the iron bolder, which
tie back. The items bring luxury to your bath. Décor wooden pole sets are
available, as well as many other designs to bring out your new towels.
Now that you have your rings, hooks, bars, and towels you might want to
offset the room further by adding bordered mirrors.
