Vintage Crocheted Doilies

A friend gave me dozens of crocheted doilies made by her mother. Not sure what I will do with all of them but as a thank you I dyed some of them and applied them with a raw edge applique flower to a denim shirt for her. The applique will need to be washed several times to rough up the edges for the right effect.

Shadow Applique

The fiber guild I belong to is doing a Textile Project. This is a prototype of one of the samples I will contribute. The design was taken from a stained glass pattern book. The sample is made from silk organza and satin stitched with rayon embroidery thread.

Snow Dyed Bags

Two bags made from snow-dyed fabric. Will use for knitting projects and Vibram five finger shoes (yoga shoes). Fronts and back of bags, not 4 different bags.
