So this is mainly for crochetycrochetlady, but I figured everyone else would like it too. SO LOOK WHAT I FOUND ONLINE LAST NIGHT! I’m definitely going to tackle this one sometime this fall. Instead of making a rug though (I feel like the rope lights might be hard on your feet) I’m thinking wall lighting. It’d be like those recessed ceiling lights or back lit canvases. I think it’d be great.
My grandma asked me a while back if I could pick her up some size 10 crochet thread so that she could make her ladies aid group some doilies as a gift.
Since then, I have seen doilies EVERYWHERE! I never knew there were so many things to do with them. I was under the impression that you just put them under lamps or picture frames or what-not. However, there are several fashionable things to do with them. Pillow covers seem to be the most common use but I have recently seen them sewn onto dresses, wallets, clutches, necklaces, bracelets and much more.
Anyway, I decided to make a couple myself since I would be traveling and needed something to do in the car anyway. It was really not bad, I did skip a couple stitches in my first one by accident and I will never do the spider web pattern EVER again, but it really wasn’t that bad 🙂 I’ll have to post pictures later (my camera’s dead) so you will have to wait!
Here are my doilies that I forgot to post pictures of 😛
This one has very nice points at each green clump (also I messed up somewhere in the very beginning so that two points are too close together. It still looks nice though, and what do you do with doilies when you have nothing to put on top of them and no end tables to put them on?
You make them into dream catchers.
