I saw these on Etsy and I loved them!

I could not decide which one I liked the most plus they were expensive so I DIYed them...

I took a piece of lace. For the first design the piece I found was too wide so I trimmed it to the size I wanted.

I measured the garter on my leg to make sure it fits comfortably.

The lace was not elastic so a added a piece of blue elastic band.

I sewed the lace on the elastic and on a piece of tulle in order to give it a little “bone” To help it stand straight and then sewed some blue beads and.. voila!

Um, hello those are perfect!!! They are pretty and not many people will see them so why spend all sorts of money? Plus, your FI should love it even more that you made them! Wish I was as crafty as you dear!
