Doily Tablecloth

Last winter I started to collect doilies with a table runner project in mind. At first it was sort of a slow go because I didn't want to spend over $1 on a doily. I hit the jack pot one day at Goodwill and got 2 bags full of doilies for $3! They were blue but bleached to white just fine. I finally got around to finishing the table runner this weekend.


I really wanted more variety in my doilies, but I got tired of waiting so I just went with what I had. I think the table runner turned out pretty cute and is perfect for the winter! Hopefully it isn't the only "snow" we see around here.



Original idea and directions HERE.

Cool. I just took a stash of old ones from my grandparent's old closet too. They need some oxiclean but I may try this out.

This is totally awesome! I love the idea of a doily runner and am wondering where I find some doilies to make one myself. Very clever, and perfect for winter and Valentine's Day.

Super cute! My girlfriend was just considering this for her wedding. My coworker is also making me a pink doily ;)
