Vintage Doilies

This idea has been spinning in my imagination for some time now.
 I knew exactly which table cloth I wanted to experiment with.
It's a small square table topper in a cream color fabric 
that I created to lay over a lush green velvet covered round table.

I pulled out a stash of vintage doilies 
and began laying them out along the edge.
You can hand stitch them in place once you have positioned them.

I'm not done yet, I need to keep adding to it.
I need to find some square and oval shapes too.
I just wanted to get the post up and share the fun.

This is a super easy DIY project 
and a great way to enjoy your favorite vintage doilies.

Here is a little tip, if you don't have enough to go all the way around,
 you can cut them in half and sew the raw edges carefully into the hem.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
