Lace Doilies

Hand-stitch a doily or two, to the front of a cushion cover. Or try customising curtains by stitching doilies of varying sizes along the hemline.

To make a doily basket, soak a doily in liquid starch, squeeze out excess, and place doily over an inverted bowl covered in waxed paper. Leave to dry may take one to three days.

A great idea for old doilies try sewing them all together to make a runner
