I had to get my fill of fabric, lace and ribbon shopping in the other day and came home with these things:
The lace is imported from Switzerland and I have both a white and an ivory to make two garters. The ivory ribbon really turned out gold in this photo, but truly its an ivory as well to match the lace. You may not want to toss these, as they look as if they could be quite an heirloom, they are so delicate.
I also found these adorable little pins that I will attach to a satin bow on each of the garters.
They are just slightly different. The one on the left, for the ivory lace has a silver rhinestone center and the coloring is a little more gold throughout which goes well with the ivory. The other has a pearl center and is more silver.
I will post an update when I have added to my Etsy Shoppe
