One Doily, One Shirt !


Hello friends!

 I have a large amount of linens I have been sorting through.

In fact I have them for sale right now on EBAY by the pound!


I found all sorts of shapes-


I found a KITTY !

Can you see it ?




Just any old flannel shirt will do-




I'm going to add the doily to the back.




I

I pinned my doily in place, and measured to make sure it was centered.

I decided to add it to the shirt below the yoke.

With long hair the design would be covered at the collar.





I carefully cut away the fabric behind the design,

to about a 1/4'' away from the stitching.




Turned right side to the front top side.

Then I used a zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine.

I stitched right over that edge line.



This is the inside of the shirt after stitching.




I always were another T Shirt underneath my flannels.

Then the lace design detail will really show.


I had my mannequin model for us!


I like the look-

It's easy to do....and it's easy to find old doilies around.

Short and sweet-

Thank you for visiting today!

This shirt below had no yoke seam in back,

 so I stitched up under the collar.

This shirt has already sold.

All the packages of doilies have sold too-

I will try to put some more together soon.

  3. Lisa, I love this idea for reusing doilies! I actually just found a few really old doilies that were my mother’s that I have been unable to part with but really have no use for. I think I will find a creative way to use them on my clothing now! Thanks so much for the wonderful inspiration. I will be featuring this post on Tuesday’s #SpreadTheKindness Link Party!

      Here in California a flannel is all we need for most of the winter!

  5. What a lovely idea. I've made some table runners from old doilies and attached some to bags but I love the idea of wearing them! They look especially good with the check too, I've always loved check and lace together.

    1. Linda, I pick them up for pennies. I really appreciate all the hard work put into making them. My G.G. loved to do tatting. I can't even crochet a scarf.

  11. Great idea, Lisa! I've added old linens to sleeves, but love the effect of the crochet with the flannel. You're going to get some features with this one, for sure!
