I don’t really know what came over me, but I seem to have bought a lot of doilies.Although I’ve always thought they were pretty, I haven’t ever looked at them as something I would use or sew with before. But as I was looking through them at a market on Saturday, for some reason I felt like I had to buy them – like they had secret potential that would become clear once I got them home.A few ideas came to mind. With the smaller ones, maybe little coin purses or pin cushions. With the bigger ones, maybe cushions or bags. But then I googled ‘craft ideas for doilies’. And, as it turns out, there are a lot of craft ideas for doilies. Dream catchers, table runners, bunting, hair pieces, bowls, tea light holders, pockets (for the less holey ones!), coasters, wedding dresses, lampshades, curtains, collars, bracelets… I think I’ve got a lot of sewing to do.
