These crocheted steampunk doilies by Severina of VintageStitchORama would make charming gifts; use them as trimming for a ladylike chemise, as a trim for an antimacassar, or to protect your Stickley tiger oak dresser top from unsightly scratches.
Here is another pattern courtesy of Morag at VintagePurls. Sometimes we need a doily (or several) to accentuate our sitting room décor, and the Cobweb Doily fills the bill. This enchanting circular crocheted doily is pictured in bubblegum pink, but I’d make it up in sophisticated black. Doilies are perfect strewn over the armrest of your favorite overstuffed velvet reading chair.
