Step three on my big DOILY PROJECT: Making something fun and new out of old doilies, ( check out the lion-doily here). (and the sparkling ombre doily pillow here).
I love old doilies and their crisp and fragile appearance, but they have a way of just lying there in a drawer, collecting dust. Don’t they?
Instead of hiding them from the world, my mission is to find some practical (and beautiful) uses for them.
I still don’t know their purpose, but here’s how I made some new use for them:
Flower hair pins, using only salvaged materials. (Following my mantra Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose.)
I used the flower petal of an old, broken flower light chain, that looked like this:
Detach the petals and you are ready to go.
Here is a quick how to:
Bring out your needle and a small piece of fabric.
Sew true all the layers.
Attatch the pin.
