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.

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.
