Gillian adapted the Hapsburg Lace bookmark into a pouch for her thread cutter pendant.
She used purse closure magnets for the flap to close the pouch. The magnet is in a plastic mesh which you can cut to fit and sew in place.

“For my Hapsburg lace canvaswork bookmark I have chosen very similar colours to Tanja’s original. I managed to find a beautiful dusky pink silk ribbon, and some purply beads which work perfectly with it”

“The Hapsburg Lace Eyelets and Lace are embellished with small beads throughout the needlework and frame. It is matted with a gold insert and simple black frame. The beads really made this picture pop. Everyone comments on how beautiful it is. Thank you.”

“When I first saw it, it caught my eye and I know I had to stitch it. I really and truly enjoyed doing it and proud of it. Hope maybe in the future there will be a “partner piece” to go with it. Am proud of myself for doing it and completing it. It seems I just couldn’t put it down; and any chance I had, it seems it just drew me to it.”

“It was interesting to me since I had never framed a piece of canvas work into a bell pull, using the little hangers and I was surprised that the whole project was completed using one ball of pearl cotton”

“I have always loved anything lacy and of course when I saw the Hapsburg Lace sampler on Tanja’s website, I fell in love with it immediately and just had to stitch it. This project was very difficult to put down as it was just so much fun to go from one pattern to the next. Adding those beautiful ribbons to some of those patterns almost made me feel that it was real lace in front of me.”

“So many beautiful designs that come with such clear instruction and are a joy to stitch, suitable for different levels of expertise, you will be amazed at how quickly you will gain confidence to tackle a next stage project or another type of technique. The choice of so many all from beginners to more advanced is truly wonderful.”
