I've had a few queries about what I was going to do with my vintage doilies. Truth be told I didn't have any definate ideas and definately had nothing to show.
Today however an idea came together quite nicely and while Guy was having a nap after a big morning play date I was able to execute my idea.
Take one vintage doilie and one one piece baby suit. Stitch doilie to front of suit and voila! A very cute embellishment. The suit is actually pale green, it's a bit washed out in these photos, and the doilie is a latte colour (just think of that common colour you often see these doilies in!). I left the very outside edge unattached so it sits up a bit like flower petals. I did contemplate using applique heat and bond stuff but you would have seen it through all the gaps in the doilie. So instead I stitched it on by hand.
So there you go - one doilie used up. Does anyone else have any cute doilie suggestions?
