Yay littlepoppits is back with a bump! (not a baby one!) guess me and my gang partied a bit too hard, Can you do that! no didn’t think so either. Anyways here’s just one of the things I’ve been up too!
I just love crochet doilys and have a HUGE stash of the things, mostly vintage and a few I’ve made when patience allowed (not many of these!). I was chuffed to bits to find a use for them in my trusty granny chic book! (if you wanna get your mitts on it it’s by dottie angel and ted & agnes.)
It’s a beautiful idea and so easy. You just arrange your doilys in a way that makes you happy and sew together with embroidery thread, you do this very obviously and roughly which is great for me as I don’t sew well!. It can be as few for a table mat or loads for a gorgeous bedspread! I made a tablecloth, and I reckon it’s dead cute!
p.s. you may also notice that my fabric wrapping obsession is still going strong, as you can see from my table! (opps)
Welcome back 🙂 Oh! yes, I did notice your fabric wrapping obession 🙂 it looks great, your table and the crochet doilys, I should do this, I have a couple of these; made from my hubby’s grandma 😉 Glad to have you back 🙂
thank you. xxxx
Sorry, it’s too pretty. I’d never want to put a glass of red wine on it. I’d end up covering all its beauty under heavy plastic or something really ugly. Or I could always switch to white wine 🙂
with my poppits I have to cover it in clear plastic! Its the only way they can not have a meal without spilling at least one drink. so I can have my red wine too and white and rose! xxx
At first I read crochet dolly’s and was completely intrigued! I had to check out and see all these fabric dollies sewn together LOL. However what you have really done is just gorgeous 🙂
dolly’s next time maybe! lol. xxx
I have tons of doilies! I just switch mine out occasionally on my end tables…I need to do something like this! Also, I noticed the table in your last post with the kids doing the cards but wasn’t sure if it was newly done or not! I won’t be surprised if you do your walls next!!
I know- I need to go to therapy! x
Brings back memories of when I used to crochet these. haven’t done for years but I used to LOVE it. Beautifully crocheted.
thank you. xxxx
Wow! What a wonderful idea…mmmm maybe that should be my next obsession (I’m looking for a new one ;)) – and I do soooooo love pretty craft work 🙂
me too! my son is not so sure though, he wants more man stuff around! x
Do you hand wash to clean these?
well they were all clean to start with, but I put a clear plastic cover over when using as my kids just can’t have a meal without spilling at least one drink! (sometimes me too!) x
OK, that makes a lot of sense 🙂
