If you are anything like me you have a true love for doilies and vintage linens. Growing up my mom always had a long doily on my dresser, and still sometimes has them out for different things. (that is probably were I get it from!) I thought of this idea when I saw all these different doilies at the thrift store. I always love all the different patters and colors, but since 2018 is the year of the purge I force myself to leave them behind unless I know exactly what I am using them for; and lucky me I thought of something!
-Doilies (I used around 12 and spent around 10 dollars for all my doilies. I also ended up cutting one in half
-Heat seaming (I used this)
-old towel (to place under your project so you don’t ruin your ironing board cover)
-Iron (also water for steam)
As you can tell all my doilies are different shapes sizes and colors, I preferred it this way, but you can always stick to one shape or size – that is the great thing about do it yourself it is whatever you want!
Next I did move the doilies around until I came up with a pattern that I liked.
Then i started “gluing” the doilies together with the heat stitch (make sure to have your old towel underneath!)
Make sure to read the label carefully as some heat stitch products do not need steam.
Let all the heat stitch cool and then lay it out and enjoy! (a little bit of a odd angle, but you get the idea 🙂 )
best salt and pepper shakers ever! They can be found a Target, the tray and milk glass are thrifted, and the plant is from Wal-Mart found on clearance
Let me know what you think of this DIY and also if you want more DIY posts.
