From skirt to tattered lace wristlet!

Remember this skirt that I found at the Goodwill?

I cut off the trim at the top of the skirt and
used part of it to make this wristlet.

I love the tattered look so I didn't want to add
a lot of embellishment.

I added a snippet of vintage lace and a tattered rose that I made and wa la...a wristlet was born!

I even utilized the snaps on it to fasten it together.
I am thinking now that I might make a tinier rose to
cover up the snap...but for right now,
it is what it is and I love it!

I even have enough trim left over to make one
or two more. This was a simple and fun project
that I really enjoyed!

Have a wonderful weekend! Blessings~
