Anyway… Tuesday morning, I was sitting there with a stack of embroidered doilies in front of me. Some of them were new… still had tags on them… and some of them were quite old… with stains that were acquired decades ago… and I’m trying to remember what I had in mind for them. Sure, over the years I’ve seen many doily crafts and I’ve thought to myself, “Hey, you have a bunch of those!” BUT I do remember that originally I wanted them for something specific… oh, what was it?
Oh well… I’ve got other stacks with similar stories. There are embroidered handkerchiefs and antique buttons. There are wooden thread spools… and heaven help me on this one… bottle caps. Originally, they all had a purpose. Do I remember them today, uh, no.
But moving right along, since I no longer remember exactly WHY I started collecting doilies, I’m in a great position right now to try my hand at some of the wonderful doily crafts that are waiting to be made. Below I’ve shared 11 such projects and there are a hundred more out there. Some of them have tutorials and others are there just to provide inspiration. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do, especially if you are like me and have a stack that you have collected for some reason you no longer remember!
