How to make Doily Bunting - so easy.

I've have not been feeling great this week with a cold, and yesterday was the worst, so I took 15 minutes after dinner to make some pretty doily bunting with these lovely dollies I was given.

Then I had to choose what the hang my bunting off. I decided on the mauve ribbon. Then I cut the doilies in half.

And sewed them on. I used a fancy stitch, for strength, and because I can.

Then I bundled up a little package to give to a friend I'm seeing on the weekend. :)

Oh and look, my pantry is getting organised.


  1. Your little birthday package is gorgeous, I've always wanted to make one of those doily garlands, so beautiful. Your pin cushion truck turned out great!

    1. Thanks Erica. Doily bunting is so easy, I'd been thinking of making it for ages, then I got given a bunch of doilies, so I got straight to work.

  2. Love the doily bunting! Love doilies, and don't have any, altho I DO have some vintage embroidered bureau scarves that I love.

    The pantry display looks great. Are you using the canisters or are they just for looks?


  3. the embroidered scarves sound lovely. I have things in the tins :) No one really sees them in my pantry but they make me smile, and some of them are on the kitchen bench with things in I need to keep handy for the kids, so they are on display. I really should have broken up that sentence but I'm too tired to fix it now.
