Sewing thread + size 10 hook = hand cramp Smiley

The pattern should normally give a doily 9.5 inches in diameter, but mine turned out to be around 4 inches.  I hope it's small enough for a dollhouse tablecloth.

Way cute!  I make regular size doilies and know how labor intensive they are.  Do you have a pattern or did you just follow a regular with sewing thread or maybe one separated strand of embroidery floss?

I love doilies! They take soooo long to make but they're so pretty when they're done. I made a few teeny ones that I planned on using as coasters but I ended up giving some to my grandmother instead, lol. Very pretty!

How long did it take to make?  It is very cute.  Good suggestion starching and putting on Christmas tree.  Did you use cotten sewing thread?  I wonder if those glittery threads for embroidery would work.
