Vintage doilies are one of my favorite embellishments!
You will need:
a bedspread or vintage fabric the size of a bedspread
various sizes of vintage doilies
needle and thread
- Pin your doilies on your fabric or bedspread in your desired pattern. Use just a few or go crazy!
- Hand-stich your doilies to the bedspread. Don't worry about doing perfect stitches, the doilies will hide your stitchery. Just be sure the doilies are secure!
- Put your bedspread on your bed and enjoy!
You can tea-stain your doilies to give them an even more antique look. Or tea-stain the entire project once it's been sewn.
