I bought some
Venice lace trims from Fabricmart thinking that I could use them for
lace tongas

Well I got them today and these are not the laces I envisioned. Venice lace is much "heavier", more like doily material/weight. I really canít imagine wearing these as panties. Now have 4 different 1-yard pieces of these lace trims (1-yard would be enough for panties). What can I do with them?

FabricMart takes returns, although you do pay return shipping. Probably won't cost more than a few dollars if they're under 13 ounces.

I know, but I feel bad returning cut fabric in case they can't resell these (maybe no one wants just a yard of these). I figure I will look for some ideas before resorting to returns.

"I feel bad returning cut fabric in case they can't resell these (maybe no one wants just a yard of these). I figure I will look for some ideas before resorting to returns."

That is good of you. The holidays are coming...maybe you could make some extravagant Christmas stockings or other gifts or use for pillow trim, or make some narrow scarves and trim with the laces.

I used the wider Venetian trim to make the Ruby Slip, here's the review. Perhaps you can use it it to trim some other lingerie patterns.

Or, use it to make lavender sachets for gifts this holiday season? This one is from Etsy.

I just realized you probably have the wider trim if you were going to make tangas. And it's 4 four different trims. Hmm... You could still do the slip, you'd just need to have a solid back bodice?

Put it on the classifieds. I'm sure someone will buy it and you will recoup your investment.

Ruby Slip is actually one of the patterns I plan to sew! I'll see if the lace will work. The trims I got are 6" and 7" so I think they will work. You didn't find the lace too bulky for the slip? I was really surprised by the heft of the lace. They really feel like fine doilies to me.

The slip wasn't for me, it was a bridal gift. It did get a little softer after hand-washing. I think my lace was 7 1/2" wide, took a little fiddling for placement but it worked.
