Chain of Crocheted Doilies tutorial

20131128-162007.jpg

I initially made this sweet chain of crocheted doilies to be used as Christmas decorations, but frankly I think you could enjoy these all round.

So simple yet so much effect.
– small crochet doilie, cut (cut from tableclothes) or whole. I got mine off eBay.
– PVA glue
– 4ply wool or string

To start with all you have to do is mix your PVA glue (approx 2tbl) with water (4tbl). Then dunk your doilies until they soak up the liquid. Lay them out onto a plastic surface to dry.

They dry hard and will not fray when using cut doilies.
To finish I finger knitted a chain using 4 ply bamboo. I incorporated each doilie 10cm apart by just sticking the wool through a hole of the doilie during a stitch.
Here is an easy finger knitting tutorial made by Imogen’sAngels.
