I would love to hear your comments!

  1. When I make small doilies like this one I stitch them to a felt backing and use them as lovely iPad screen wipes.

    • Great idea Candee! I love small doilies because you can do so much with them besides – well, just doilies! Jar toppers, candle covers, coasters etc. And now we have one more idea – thanks!

    • Thank you Lynne! So true, they do work up fast and you can use them in so many different ways – think jar toppers, candle doilies and more! :-)

  3. I think to add stiffner to the doily and form it into a small bowl that could be used for potpourri or better a ring holder. . Or with a little stiffening roll it into a cone and put flowers in it…a nosegay of old! Use either to take to someone special in the hospital or nursing home.

    • All wonderful ideas – I especially like the ring holder or to hold potpourri! Thank you so much! :-)

  5. Congratulations to Francesca Bowman – your name was drawn as our winner! Pleases select a pattern from my online Raverly shop! I will be in contact with you soon!

    Sorry I’m late in drawing a winner – I had out-of-town, unexpected company – my 90 year old dad!

    • Francesca contacted me yesterday (the 2nd) and chose our Hallowed Pineapple Seraph pattern – great choice!

  7. I would use these to put under each one of my collectible dolls that I have around my home. They would just add to the beauty of each one.!!!

    • They would make nice “pedestals” for any collection. Not to mention, it’s fun being able to better show off a piece! :-)

  8. You can use this for so many wonderful things. I would make a pincushion, shape it into a cone and fill with crocheted flowers, jar toppers, I would also frame and hang these as a grouping on a wall. You could make miniature hats just so man y things to use them for.

    • Oh I like the idea of a pincushion and a miniature hat. I can this little doily molded to create miniature decorative hats for the fridge or whatever!

    • Love the idea! I’m afraid to admit, but I had to look up Wine 30 – sounds like an awesome place. Would love photos!

  9. I am making about six or seven to fold into a little flower and tucking them down in a pretty little bowl to give my girlfriend to use for coasters or to just sit around and look gorgeous!! Love them!!

    • Fantastic idea! I can picture them now creating a unique bouquet and yet something for everyday use. Love the idea!

  10. Hi Cylinda, thank you for this lovely Miniature Picot Lace Doily design. Purple just happens to be my favourite colour :o) I intend to make a number of these. I’ve also thought of making 3, 1 in Kelly Green, then 1 white & then a golden yellow which are the Tri-colours of the Irish flag. I am Irish-born and think that this will be pretty sling with perhaps some Shamrocks added here & there for a pleasant decoration for all year round. (framed under glass). Can’t wait to see how this goes. Thanks again for you loverly design.
    Mary Margaret

    • Mary Margaret, these are all lovely ideas! And working the motifs in colors of the Irish flag, I just love! And I love shamrocks and can easily visualize them as accents to bags etc. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    • Susie, fabulous idea. I love runners – probably the reason I’ve designed so many, but this would be a lovely motif to use in creating a runner. Thank you for the invitation – on my way shortly!

  11. I like using small doilies under my glassware on the glass shelves of my china cabinet or on the bookshelf. I think they also look pretty framed with my Crinoline Girls.
    Thanks for all the beautiful patterns.
    Marge

    • Thank you Marge! Yes, adding these little doilies under glassware really adds style to a hutch or curio. It seems they used to decorate with these little doilies much more in the past then now. Great ideas!

    • Awesome! If you’re intimated by thread, try a larger thread to start. But yes, definitely start with a small piece and work up in size from there. :-)

  12. I can see this pretty little doily on the top of a ring bearer’s pillow, in the bride’s choice of color(s).
    I can also see it attached to the side of a plain handbag, to really “jazz” it up.
    Oh, and how about mounting it in a brass ring for a suncatcher?
    Okay, I’ll stop now and give someone else a turn. :)

    • Wonderful ideas Rosina – and yes, all would be so pretty! I especially love the idea for a ring bearer’s pillow worked in the bridal colors. Love them all!

    • I could easily see these made up in a series of framed art that are grouped together – maybe in shades of the same color or picking up various color schemes through out the room. Great idea!

  13. I love the idea of a jar topper too! I was also thinking of the doily forming the crown of one of those pretty lace large-brimmed and expanding the pattern to make the hat to hang as a wall decoration.
    Also, I was thinking you could make this doily as is, as a centerpiece, and then make more of the same doily and attach them all around the original doily in the center. This would make a large lacy table topper or tablecloth. :)

    • Lee Ann – love these ideas! I can visualize the decorative hat idea and joining the doilies together for the brim with one at the top of the crown – then continue to work chain stitches with picots to conform to the crown before working the brim. Outstanding!

  14. My mother has been experimenting with ways to hide her thinning hair and has been looking at yamulkes of late (despite not being Jewish or particularly wanting to look like she is — she just can’t stand hat bands or any pressure around her temples and she has a really big head). I’m thinking of buying some of the basic plain ones in nice colors, then stitching on crochet lace and/or beadwork and this doily looks like it could work well for that.

    • What an interesting idea for using this mini-doily! I would love to see a picture posted if you work the idea up for your mom. Good luck with the idea and I know your mom will appreciate it greatly!

    • That would be pretty – lacy and definitely feminine… perfect for summer evenings too.

    • Lovely idea Cille! It would make a pretty jar topper with some jam or something canned – and given as a gift!

        • For sure! Layered mixes in a jar – perfect gift! I’m thinking too, maybe coffee or hot chocolate mixes and then later a coaster for your drink!
