Learn how to lace a wallet is as easy as following these simple steps. If you have made a handmade wallet for your family and friends and you want that personal touch to finish it up, then lacing a wallet is the best way to make your wallet look very unique and even classy, in some cases. While this task can seem daunting for a beginner, it is, in fact, much easier than you think. In this article, we will show you the techniques that you can use when lacing a wallet.
To lace a wallet, you will need:
- sewing machine (you can also pin it yourself)
- ready made fabric wallet
- Figure out where you want the lace to be. That should always be your primary concern when lacing a wallet. Remember, once you put down the lace on the wallet and start the sewing machine, there is no going back. You also want to make sure that the area you put is proportional to the entire wallet.
- Pin it in place. If you are using a sewing machine, it is important that you pin your lace in place when lacing a wallet. You definitely do not want the lace to move while sewing it onto the wallet. If you are sewing it yourself, then this step is not as important.
- Follow the edge of your lace. Now that you have the lace pinned in place, you want to follow the edge of the lace and slowly sew it onto the wallet.
Choose a thread that is of a similar color to the lace, so that it may blend in better when the lace is on a wallet.
