If you’ve been following Dollar Store Crafts for a few months, you’ll know that I am a sucker for projects that involve doilies! Even I didn’t know that about myself until I started gravitating toward projects that use doilies!

Emily M. of The Black Apple (I love her art!) has a fashion blog called Some Girls Wander in which she posted a simple and pretty idea for a scarf made from vintage doilies.

Sew doilies together to make a pretty and lacy scarf. The dollar store has crocheted doilies that come one or two to a package, or you can use vintage doilies or crocheted-type lace that you find at thrift or antique stores (or maybe your mom or grandma can spare a few). Or if you’re the doily crocheting-type, here’s a great use for some of your work.

Project Materials:

  • Doilies, 10 or so, $1 each
  • Sewing machine or needle/thread, on hand

Total: $10 or so, depending on what you have on hand
