Oh The Things You Can Make With Doilies
On January 31, 2010 I blogged about the doilie curtain I made for my bedroom window.
Last week I finished the other curtain.
(The photo of it is at the very end of this blog).
The first curtain.
Both curtains were made from this beautiful French linen sheet.
It was a birthday gift from a best girlfriend, seven years ago.
I have been saving it for the perfect project.
I'm so happy I used it for my bedroom curtains because I see it everyday.
It's a lovely piece of fabric and it reminds me of friendship.
This hand embroidered monogram takes my breath away.
I aspire to monogram this perfect one day.
I would love everything in my home to be monogrammed.
There wasn't enough linen fabric to make two curtains.
I was super lucky to find this tablecloth complete another whole curtain.
I found this vintage linen tablecloth at my local antique mall for 7$.
Most of these doilies were found at the same antique mall. ($1 - $2)
Some were from my Grandma Billie and some were from my Great-Grandma Johnson. (My mom's grandma).
The table cloth and sheet are measured to sew together.
The first AB curtain was also hand bound to finish the edge.
