I WANT THREAD CROCHET!!

I hope you had a very nice weekend and you are back to crafting, there are WIPs to finish.

I was thinking this: I love thread crochet and tiny hooks and I want to make lots of doilies, so….why not share with you?? and I think that is exactly what I’m going to do.

If you want to see vintage crochet just open a doily book but the beauty of it all is that doilies never did go away and they are as beautiful today as they were hundreds of years ago.

 We have modern doilies made with lots of colors, we have those made with Bruges lace and all different shapes, take a stroll with me,,,

 

 

 

 

Doilies can be used as place mats or on your coffee table or for wall decor or on furniture etc you can put doilies any where you want an look elegant.

    I’ve never tried thread crochet but I am tempted. I inherited my grandmother’s collection of hooks but none of her work, so I’d love to try it some time. The examples you found are lovely. Have to add this to my creative to do list.

  15. I like doilies and the last year I made some for our friend and for my mother-in-law. I had only brown and white thread but I liked to combine these two.

  16. I live making doilies. When I use thread however, I have trouble with the tiny hooks so I use a size E and two strands. I’ve also made them with sugar n cream cotton!
