Black Lace.

These fingerless gloves made from black lace take 5 minutes to make and cost probably under 1 Euro a pair.

I saw similar ones, some weeks ago, on the Games Com, sold for around 10 Euros, and saw an immediate rip off - opportunity.

So off I went to the fabric fair and got myself a metre of black lace. This cost 3 Euro and 50 Cent per metre, and they had several different patterns to chose from.

(Now, isn´t lace pretty? It is, right?)

So - I just traced my hand/wrist with chalk...

...cut the whole thing twice for each arm, and ran with my sewing machine around the edges.

Super simple, awesome effect, and I think from this one metre, I can still make 2 more pairs. If I don´t decide to attach the rest somewhere else... I could picture adding it to a shirt, somewhere around either the neckline or the waist. And next time I´m getting white lace, too.


My favourite discovery of the year, I think. I really like Ralph´s voice, and they are awesome live in concert :)
