In this tutorial you'll learn to connect lace
designs that consist of 2 or more parts with curved edges. You'll also learn to
attach the ready laces to garments.
As a result of reading through this article, you should be able to make any

Below you'll learn to assemble this kind of "secret connect" laces.
This project was created using Shamrock
Lace designs in Irish folk art style.
