My birdcage veil!! A tutorial. I have been inspired by a lot of veils in the past few months.

My birdcage veil!! A tutorial

Lots. I decided I wanted a birdcage veil before I really knew what that meant, and there are a lot of variations! I wanted a big flower or other hairpiece, with veiling. Where to start?! So many types out there. From BHLDN (headbands, hairpieces, and veils): Tutorials - StumbleUpon. Hola there!

Here you can find an organized list of all my tutorials, projects and printables. I want to point out that I am no sewing expert and have no formal education in either sewing or English (Spanish is my native language) So I might not always use the correct terminology or best technique, I am always learning too! Rick Rack Rosettes. A friend gave me this flower ring and necklace, when she handed them to me I thought they were porcelain–there’s a very vintage feel to them.

Rick Rack Rosettes

From a distance you really can’t tell that they’re made out of rick rack! Yes, rick rack! She shared how to make them with me, and now I’m sharing with all of you readers! The wow of the rosette comes from a few simple steps! She found this tutorial, in Portuguese I believe. First, cut 2 strips of rick rack. Then twist the two pieces of rick rack together, like this. And then run a stitch down one side to hold it all together. Like so. And to make the flower, you just start from one end and roll it up. Keep rolling. Until you have this–and then tuck the little tail under and hot glue it down. You’ll notice all of the petals are closed, so to open them up you just peel them back one by one.

You all know how much I love the unique, different, and offbeat when it comes to weddings [especially in the Washington, DC area], so naturally, I jumped out of my seat when Lindsey sent me this: How to Make Ruffle Butt Undies – video tutorial. I finally got this tutorial uploaded to Youtube without problems.

My fiancé, Ethan, and I are getting hitched in September at a place with indoor and outdoor space available to us. I’m having my mom’s wedding dress altered and the puff sleeves removed, so I decided to knit something to put on in case the evening gets chilly. I used Vine Lace, my very favorite lace pattern (as you may have noticed from a past web-letter), taken from Barbara Walker’s Treasury of Knitting Patterns.

Once you get the hang of it, it’s easy to work. For the yarn, I used Posh, a cashmere/silk blend from CEY’s luxury division. Loose Tahitian Pearls. Chiffon & Lace Babydoll. Georgette Halter Babydoll.
