Doily Runner

I saw the idea for one of these on Pinterest.  My daughter and I both liked the idea.  I made her one for Christmas, which I couldn’t post on here until today…for obvious reasons.  She loves it, and this picture is one she took of it on her table.  A few of the doilies I just made up as I went along.  I wanted to make sure I had a variety of sizes.  The one on Pinterest was made of vintage doilies, I think, but I thought it would work just as well with new doilies. :)

  1. I love that Rita. I'm going to have to keep an eye out for doilies if I ever go back to the thrift store so I can make one. :)

    1. Thanks, Debi. :) It really would be a fun thing to make with thrift store doilies. :) Laura asked me a couple months ago if I was ever going to make one for her. Little did she know, I had one in the works for a Christmas present. ;)

  3. I love this idea! My doilies are always huge, so I would have to make some small ones. Have a Happy New Year!

    2. Also wanted to say that I had to make some smaller doilies for this also. That's why I made some up as I went along..so I'd have the sizes I needed. :)
