That's really cute. Smiley
Since you say you've got hundreds of 'em, I just also wanted to mention this doilie art thing I saw a couple of weeks ago... someone had attached tatted doilies to a deep-edge canvas, then sprayed one color covering everything - after that, the doilie was sprayed in a contrasting color (usually white), but sort of from the side and below instead of straight on, giving a fascinating 3d-light look. The contrast spray ofc colored large bits of the canvas too, but it still got this... 3d-light effect 'cause the contrast was just used lightly, and looked more to be reflecting off the canvas..

bluwave06, it came out great!! I wouldn't have thought to put a patterned fabric (or paper) behind them. It looks neat!

A friend of mine has a neat hat that someone made, starting with a doily to make the top. They added the rest of the hat with crochet in regular yarn. Do I make any sense? Hahah.

Thanx, everyone. I didn't think of material until I was looking around the room and spotted some left over fabric.

That sounds awesome. I will have to try that when the weather is better.

Perfect sense, another great idea. There are so many possibilities....

If you have so many you could make yourself some tops or even a lacy skirt by joining them together.

I think the motif is pretty. I'd use one as a pendant, or attach one to a piece of felt and make a brooch.

That would be nice. There are so many possibilities... once I can figure out how they are made, I'll be able to make more.

Everyone has such great ideas. I like the blanket one!
Your framed picture came out great too!

How about buying or making a blank canvas tote type bag, and then sewing the doilies all around the outside either one hear and there, around the edges, or covering the whole bag as if it was made out of doilies.
