My little sister is getting maried this weekend. For her gift, I got her the caterer for her reception. But I feel like everyone deserves an actual gift for their wedding day.

So, a friend of mine makes these lovely crochet name doilies and encouraged me to give it a try. This is my sister's soon-to-be married name.

Here is the finished piece



Here is the process....











I never thought I could do something like this, but I am SOOOOOO pleased!!!

Hope you like it!

P.S.

Here is a picture of my sister and new brother-in-law opening it!

This is really gorgeous. My grandmother used to do all sorts of this kind of stuff, so it's really nostalgic for me because we have it all over our house. Definitely itching to try it out now...

Honestly, I have crocheted for a while, but I had never thought I'd be able to do it.

I have several tips for first timers, but in general, I found some great sites that really made it seem easy!

Maybe I should post them?
