Do you remember...........???

 
 Perhaps you can remember the nicest witch who went on TV in the 60s....
                                        BEWITCHED, yes!!!!!!!
 I vaguely remember seeing a few episodes mid-70s in Spain.
 So a few days ago I was watching these episodes again, when I noticed that wonderful black tie that Samantha wears in her hair.... then I decided that a black velvet bow would look very nice with my suit. I warned you I was looking for accessories for it!!
 


 Thinking about giving a "special touch" to my bow, I fumbled for my cave (stash) to see what I could find .
 Discover .... an accessory to make a cameo, black velvet ribbon, a lock for the hair ... and ... rescuing tatting lace I started to make many months ago.... First I finished the lace tatting, then I cut a piece of black felt for use  in basic and sew lace it.
 A little tip for the velvet ribbon isn´t "undo" wher I cut .... Apply some clear nail polish. It´s like  "invisible glue".
 Finally, sew the clip of hair on the wrong side of velvet bow.
 Now I have a gorgeous clip for my hair, along with my suit!!!!!
 I recorded a little video for you to see some more of this wonderful lace called tatting. Of course, I´m not an expert, if you want to know more about this way of making lace, you can find videos on youtube, there is a very broad spectrum to learn to do it.
                   You should try...

  2. I remember.. but not the "bewitched" series, no, that I once knew how to do tatting. I even have some spools for it somewhere.
    Very nice hairband, so special.
