Use for Doileys


Just returning from Spokane, it's interesting that there should be a discussion on doileys. This angel skirt was a doily found at an estate sale, I cut out the center, added a few rows to make it the right length, tatted up wings, added a halo and you have a tree top angel. This is a quick gift idea. Great way to use a doilie (please note, I spelled it 3 ways on purpose.)

  • It's such a gorgeous angel, skirt and all! We hardly have such estates sales here (at least not that I know of), won't have much luck here to pick up these bargains.

  • That is so pretty. I have an angel that I made from 3 doilies and used porcelain hands and head like yours. I just love angels and tatting.

  • Very clever idea, I never thought of that!

  • Terry I really loved your class!
    Now I just need to find some of those special "tatting finds" that you have so cleverly recycled.

    Thank you much for your teaching!
