Old become new!

I have allways been facinated by needlecraft. In past times women put a lot of pride in making beautiful items as it refelcted one of the skills they were meassuerd by. The other day my local charity shop had some mini dollies.
To me it was like finding a hidden treasur! Guess who bought them all....

It's a shame to put away exquisite work like that, so I decided to give them a second life. So far I have made one hat. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!


  1. Thats a great idea to use the dollies, makes the hat very pretty and a bit different :-)

  2. That is great. I love how it's functional, but oh so pretty!

  3. I have some old doilies I inherited from my grandmother. I can't think of a good use for them, but the hat looks nice! Maybe I could use them to decorate bags, too... Or winter coats, even.
