I thought knitting a doily would make a good summer project. It's not very big and I can actually use it. I've knit doilies before but this one is different. It's made as 2 separate pieces, the body and the trim. I wasn't really sure how it was going to turn out.
The body is a bit wavy. I thought the trim wouldn't fit it properly. I did like the picture of the finished doily so I just kept going!
Here's the trim. It was fun to make. I thought it was pretty right from the start.
I attached the trim with pins to make sure it fit and to ease the waviness of the body. After sewing, I washed the doily and pinned it to this board. It was 12 inches across so it was pretty easy to pin to the proper size. Once it was pinned into place, I sprayed a good amount of starch all over it. I put it out on my deck to dry for awhile. I had to keep my cat away from it. She loves removing the pins. (??)
Here it is! All dry and being used on my table! It came together quite nicely.
