New ways to feature doilies

I love all doilies. They are little gems of needlework art. ...but you can only use so many doilies in your house. I have them on armrests, head rests, under candles...just about everywhere. 

Here are some new ideas to feature doilies:

1. As earrings! Free crochet pattern at Red Heart

2. As a fancy, gift washcloth! Free knitting pattern at Red Heart

3. As art work displayed on a canvas. Free crochet pattern at Red Heart

4. Starched and hung in a window. Free crochet pattern at Red Heart

5. As a table place mat. Free crochet pattern at

Share your creative ways to use doilies with all of us!

Visit the Dollar Store

Visit the Dollar Store

Summer time may call for a change in our projects. I don't like working on anything heavy or wooly. So how about some small projects that are light and easy? 

Take a trip over to my DOLLAR STORE on ETSY for some great ideas and something different. Every pattern in this section of my store is $1 (US), comes with a free pattern and shipping is free! 

Here are examples of two crochet and two knitting patterns.

Vintage 1953 Ruffled dish cloth (crochet)

Vintage 1947 Small Leaves knitted lace edging (knitted) Use on some towels!)

Vintage 1952 Checkerboard pattern purse (knitted)
