recycling of old doilies : T-shirt and bag

Added Jan 12, 2014

Colmar, France






I have decided to recycle the old doilies from my grandmother and give them a second life.
The lace doily has become a T-shirt and the cotton one a bag.
I have taken a photo of the doilies before recycling them.
isn’t it amazing ?

Material Notes

lace, cotton

    Absolutely beautiful!!! You are a brave lady to cut up those doilies. I am too attached to my Grandmother’s doilies to cut them up. Maybe if I went to a second hand shop and bought somebody else’s doilies, I could then cut them up.

    Oh how clever to use your grandmothers doilies. Both items are just gorgeous. I love the top and the handbag is fabulous x
