doily table runner

By spotogspindel | August 15, 2010

Inspired by all the romance and girly beauty in yesterday´s post, I made a little something myself. The only limitations are fantasy and the amount of doilies to play around with.

After gathering bits and pieces of crochet and knitted doilies, from charity-shops and in my own findings, I decided to make a table-runner. (That in time might develop into a curtain.)

Trying to piece it together, and pinning it down.

It will probably look better to hand-stitch it together, but I used my machine. The two layers were a bit lumpy, so again, the hand-stitching is probably better…

I still want to add a couple of small doilies in a couple of spots, but have to wait until I find them  at a charity shop. Or get tired of waiting, and crochet a couple of them myself.


Ok. Here´s a test for you:

What do you think this will become?

Please leave a comment with your suggestion! You´re gonna need a pretty good eye to make sense of this one 😉

    The first thing that came to mind was “Skrik” (“Scream”) by Edvard Munch. But I don’ think you make art that looks that much like someone else’s art? Then when I kept looking: I think I see a foot with an orange shoe on coming up from the lower left corner, and maybe a kind of face along the right side? I’m probably way off track, but I thought I’d give it a try, LOL!

    I just love the runner created with different doilies! Elegant, artsy and unique, just wonderful!

    Your lace doily confection rocks! I would never have thought of putting random doilies together, but guess what? They look like they were made for each other and I love the diagonal.
