Beth gives some easy and quick information on how she made the boxes？ –； “；After distress painting the box， I let it dry for about an hour. Using a glue gun， I wrapped the side of the box with the blue canvas fringe ticking and then glued a strip of ivory lace trim over the ticking. The top of the box is edged in the same lace trim and features a matching blue canvas ticking flower in the center. I added a navy blue paper flower and matching butterfly. The second box was created in the same way as the first one. I used the canvas ticking fringe and ticking flower in the kraft color to create a soft look. ”；

Heirloom is one of the oldest styles of specialty sewing. This precise and delicate type of stitching is said to have started in the late 1800s by French nuns who hand-stitched exquisite laces onto delicate fabrics for royal families. Their craftsmanship was so incredible, the resulting gowns and linens were painstakingly preserved and handed down from one generation to the next; hence an heirloom. You'll see the influence of heirloom stitching in a variety of high-end garments; most notably, special occasion finery, such as wedding dresses, christening gowns, and lingerie, as well as in the finest table linens. Today, with French nuns in short supply, we show you the basics of creating heirloom stitching with your sewing machine.
