One of the doilies in my stash of thrift shop treasures is a lovely square and I have used it to make a pretty tote bag.
I think the ivory crochet looks so pretty with this pale gray linen. My supply of this beautiful fabric from Ikea is slowly coming to an end. Which means of course we'll be forced to return sometime this summer... :)
Usually when I sew, I try to work as neatly as possible. Everything crisply ironed, perfectly (or as best I can) straight seams, careful attention to every detail and of course no long threads or fraying edges.
And I do love it! I left the edges of the inner pocket and handles unfinished - and the pocket is not a perfect square either. Slung over one shoulder, it is casual and matches this new chevron summer top perfectly. (See more from this Swedish designer of beautiful textiles)
I think the rest of my doilies will go onto new items for sale in my shops. They are so inspiring!
Have a lovely Monday!
