February 22, 2010

VINTAGE DOILIES

I have so many vintage doilies and am always looking for ways to use them so when I saw this idea
in the Country Living magazine I knew I had to give it a try.
I picked some of my favorites and randomly tacked them together to create this sweet little
table runner.

Happy day bloggers!

I saw this idea too, was a little reluctant to sew my doilies together, never thinking to just tack them and take them apart if I wanted to use them of another vignette. Thanks for the inspiration.

Well, isn't marvelous when the very simpliest ideas can turn out the most beautiful results?! It is so lovely - and what a wonderful tabletop display. I'm crazy over the milk glass egg cups - clever to use them as candleholders!

I saw that same article...and have not yet done it....but I thought it's the perfect solution to my compulsive doiley making....crocheting while watching tv at night is one of my favourite passtimes!

it looks beautiful!

Oh... I just LOVE that! I picked up a handful at an estate sale this past week-end thinking they would be gorgeous on handbags.... but alas, I am unable to take the scissors to them!!! I think I will try this instead!

Thank You for inspiring me!!!

The pineapple doily in the middle is fabulous. My mother once made a tablecloth using that pattern. The handiwork on the vintage doilies is so much nicer than anything you can find today. What a lovely idea, thank you for sharing! Karyn

Jane said...

Janis,
This looks beautiful. I pick these up when I'm thrifting too and have a stash that could be put to good use as a table runner. Thanks for the idea.

Janis,
Love this idea. I saw a blog today where she made them into flowers, like you do the pattern pieces tucking a couple different shades together. Cute too. Lisa

Love this idea - now I'm kicking myself for all the doilies I've passed up -

Actually, you can even use some that have holes or tears if you attach them.

Great idea - Thanks!
