Objects old, vintage, hand made or upcyled, and old techniques with a modern twist

Hand-Dyed Vintage Lace


After hand-dying/painting some vintage lace a couple of weeks ago (see post here) I was so pleased with the result that I have experimented with a few more pieces. The Dylon Fabric Paint colours that I used can be mixed together really easily, and I found it particularly helpful that the shade/colour intensity doesn’t change as the piece dries, and then is ironed (to set the dye). Any project that provides a quick pop of colour is a winner with me!

Whilst they wait to be used in a sewing project, the lengths of lace are kept uncreased by being stored on empty vintage wooden thread reels- so a good upcycling project that gives new life to two vintage items!
