Doily table runner



I am pretty sure my classmates think I am odd each time I suggest incorporating a doily into a school project. Truth is I have a whole stack of crocheted ones and I would like to do something nice with them.

When Belinda posted her project doily series, I was happy there was someone else thinking of things to do with doilies. I have a stack of paper ones too that are crying out for a project. I'm tempted to try her stars come Christmas.

In the meantime, this table runner is looking like a contender for my crocheted ones.

  4. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this! Doilies (especially antique ones) are so fantastic, and this is a wonderful way to use them in a modern way. Hmmmm, I might have to start picking some up when I'm at flea markets and try this project!

  6. oh honey, it's not the doily's that make you odd. HA!

    I kid I kid but in regards to your doily obsession (I'll be honest! I'm partial too) I'd go ALL OUT and have them cast into a resin and acrylic screen. oh yes, I went there.

    Like this, but with your masses of doily's:

    makes me laugh to think doilies were once only something daggy my oma had sitting on her coffee table or the back of her couch.
