Irish-Style Kitchen Set with Shamrock Lace Design

Here are a few ideas of what can be done with Shamrock Lace designs.
Take a look - we've used them to make a lovely Irish-style kitchen gift set - a placemat, baby apron and elegant cooking apron.
The large white apron has been purchased, and then decorated with shamrock laces.
The baby apron and placemat have been sewn from white cotton fabric. You may see that the small apron was also quilted, and includes some batting inside.

The lace trims have been embroidered separately on water soluble backing, using matching color top & bobbin poly thread and designs from Shamrock Lace set.
The "S" initial on apron is from
Monogram #2 alphabet.

And here are several photos of the set:

    TIP: For especially thin and soft laces, it's possible to use the 60wt color bobbins thread on both top and bottom.
    We've tried this technique and it works great. The laces come out beautiful and pleasant to touch.
    Here is a list of thread colors we've used - you may get them in any version you want - top thread, matching color top & bobbin thread, or only prewound bobbins. The color numbers are universal for all of them:

    1. P567
    2. P719
    3. P721
    4. P752
    5. P740
