Made at home: Lace pendant necklace

A while back I bought quite a bit of vintage lace at a local shop.  Like a lot, a lot.  

Maybe if I made 200 of these necklaces I could use it all up.  Want to make one of your own?  Come on over, I'll loan you some lace :).

::: Step One

Trace a small circle on the lace with your pen.  You can use anything as your circle, just make it about 2 inches or less in diameter.  A sippy cup works great!

:::Step Two

Cut out your circle.

:::Step Three

 Fold your circle in half and place a pin toward the bottom.

 :::Step Four
Use a sewing machine to sew a straight line about a quarter of an inch to half an inch from the fold,  forming a pocket to pull your chain through.

Pull your chain through the pocket/channel you just made and you're done!
