I have never used linen embroidered doilies in my sewing as I really didn't know what to do with them. Yesterday I took them all for a visit to Cintia from My Poppet who is an expert on all things vintage, to give me some inspiration.
A great piece of advice Cintia gave me was to stop treating them as a doily but as a piece of fabric instead.
While ironing them all today, my head was swimming with ideas. This months newsletter (due out next week) will be a doily-fest ~ mostly of the linen kind. It will include an exclusive tutorial for using doilies within your sewing and a doily pack giveaway.

In the meantime, here are some great examples of how doilies can be used.
