Oh I do love to be beside my doilys!

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)

This cute retro sewing box jumped out at me when I was stalking just passing my fave charity shop. Sweet huh, and best yet it only cost me £4 so I couldn’t just leave it behind now could I?

Of course it was screaming “granny chic me” and I just had to oblige!

Help I’m in love with granny, chic that is!

It all kicked off when I set my eyes on this gorgeous book, granny chic from dottie angel and ted & agnes. It oughta come with a warning cos I’m addicted! I’m lovin fabric wrapping. It’s like patchwork but instead of stitching you glue (I know neat huh!).

All you do is grab yourself some wallpaper paste and stick patches of fabric to whatever you fancy (alright not the kids!), paste all over the top and leave to dry. Then apply several coats of clear varnish, sit back and admire your work!

At this moment I’m looking around the house with a glintful eye for something else to cover in fabric, driving my family bonkers as per!

If you like this granny chic style you have so totally gotta give this a whirl!
