What to do with all those Doilies? or Denim and Old Lace

I can't go toCanton without getting inspired. After a stop by the doily lady and then A visit to "girls gone junkin" I was inspired to try my hand at a doily vest.



Not an easy task... and so I decided to just alter a vest I had in my closet.

I know I'm supposed to be saving these doilies for my friend's wedding, but I can always get more and... one must strike while the inspiration iron is hot.



Here's my creation, all pinned up and waiting for the sewing machine.

I love it. I've been wanting to do the same thing but am afraid to try just all lace and doilies. Love using the vest to try first.

I never pass up old doilies or crocheted lace...so many things to do with them...I like mixing them with denim also. Thanx for sharing. Visit me sometimes. Tiff
