unexpected glamour: weather-wrecked signs and moth-eaten sweaters
Delicately and intentionally scuffed furniture is one thing. True dilapidation is another. I tend to be on the side of real dilapidation. It always looks better.
This moth-eaten sweater project takes worn-out sweaters and stays their unravelling, while kind of "gilding" or preserving the worn look with silk thread. Loving it. (I myself might do white edging on a camel-colored sweater, and experiment with exaggerating the edging a bit. Though these dainty magenta "eyelets" are very sweet as well.) A clever idea by Jennifer Kabat, featured in Supernaturale's new book, Craftivity. Thanks to Grace for the great link.
