Your Daily Dose of Doilies

Doilies are back, baby! Some may say it's debatable, but we will agree to disagree. Doilies are cuter than ever and they're all ready to make your next project granny chic. (So... does it make the concept uncool to even use the word "granny"? I think it might. No offense to actual grannies! They are the best and we love them to pieces!) Anyway, check out these great ideas, some using doily designs, and some using actual, factual doilies:


Doily Bird Framed Print from tracemyface's Etsy shop


Vintage Doily Needlebook from ravenhill's Etsy shop


Doily Pillow Cover from nuka's Etsy shop


Doily Necklace from lostintheforest's Etsy shop


Doily Clock from andfurthermore's Etsy shop


Cream Corduroy Tote from marmadesigns's Etsy shops (this is a peacock doily -- double trend)


Lace Doilies in Grey - Tea Towel from jezze's Etsy shop


Handmade Pillow Cover from pixieblossom's Etsy shop


Messenger Style Laptop Bag No. 2 from trackandfielddesigns's Etsy shop


Some darling Emily Martin dolls from her blog, Inside A Black Apple


A simple tutorial from Martha Stewart Living for adding a doily image to a cookie tin lid, plus 9 great pdfs of colored doilies ready for printing.

My mom collects doilies, she has some beautiful vintage ones and we are always trying to think of what to do with them. I love these wonderful ideas.

I love all the doilies and all the examples. Thanks for sharing. Also was wondering if your call for Aug/Sept have gone out yet?

Brooke -- that is awesome! You should email a picture of what you end up making to creations@northridgemedia.net, it's OK if it doesn't fit a specific call.

Jenny -- It is 100% my fault that those calls have not gone out yet, I'm sorry! I've had some other work things come up and haven't finalized things yet, but we will try to have the calls out by the end of the week.

I will! Looking at those pictures got my creative juices flowing. :)
