That’s beautiful.

I did my own, by hand.

I did!  I don’t have any pictures of it back yet, but I was suprised how easy it was!  Aside from my felt ring bearer pillow, the last time I had sewn I was 5 years old lol.  I just used stretch lace and measured it so it fit snugly around my thigh. 

I will post pics when I get them back, but I say go for it!

@MsGosling510:  Glad you posted that – it is the tutorial I used, and it was very helpful!

I made one out of lace from my mom’s wedding dress but I don’t have a photo of it on me right now

We made mine from lace from my mother’s wedding dress and added a horseshoe charm, for luck.

Here is mine.  Once my sewing machine cooperated with me, it was easy.  I made two BC I can’t stand the thought of tossing it away.  Plus, the bottom somewhat matches the bottom of my dress.
