All about doilies

Doilies are pretty fun. I think making them is quite an art. I remember growing up with handmade ones by my great grandmother and how beautiful the intricate details were. And I think doilies are making a a very modern and unexpected way.

I LOVE this giant doily rug by Ladies & Gentlemen and I am most definitely going to buy their book, Crafting a Meaningful Home by Meg Mateo Ilasco, when it comes out in the fall just so I can make this.

How about some rubber doily coasters? Check out these adorable ones by Gretel.

And then why not make your own doily object. Use this tutorial by paper n stitch to spruce up some things around your house. Maybe I'll try this one out this weekend.
