Doily's it appears have become trendy again. No longer associated with your Grandma, the doily adds a certain vintage femininity to an outfit or accessory. Here are some handmade, upcycled doily treats
Crochet Lace Necklace - 'trefoil' - unbleached cotton US$25
Alice in Wonderland blue green fantasy slipdress makeover, size medium large US$48
I popped into my local op shop this week to donate some clothes that I no longer wear, and came out with three little beauties, a clutch bag, and some doily’s for a total of $1.
I have been inspired by Moo Bear Designs Gina Purse Range, utilising doily's on purses, and created my own upcycled creation.
I didnt use my sewing machine, for fear I would break the needle through the clutch bag's thick PVC fabric, I stitched by hand with 'invisible thread' and a good needle. The little jewel is pinched from a pair of heels I op shopped ages ago that I haven't worn.
