I could not, would not get rid of them but sticking them on the back of my couch or under various items in my living room seemed a bit out of the question. Instead I made a darling doily banner on one rainy Sunday afternoon.
Gather your supplies, including your doilies. Mine were crocheted by my great-grandmother.
Other supplies needed:
- sewing machine or needle and thread
- fabric glue and/or straight pins
cut the doilies in half.
arrange the doilies and ribbon to how you like, cut the ribbon to length.
using fabric glue or pins, temporarily attach the ribbon to the tops of the doilies. It's okay if a little doily pokes out above the ribbon; you can trim that later.
Sew the ribbon onto the doilies and display your doily banner somewhere pretty!
I still have quite a few doilies left that I want to display somehow. Does anyone else have ideas?
