Starch and a glass bowl to form the shape turn this doily into a pretty fruit bowl. While many of the projects in the slideshow work with, even celebrate, the slight yellowing that happens to an older doily, we think this project would work best with a crisp white one.
To make this textured vase, the doily was hand-stitched around a glass vessel. Below, doilies are sewn into a pillow and at the end of a sheer curtain. Overkill all in the same room maybe, but a dual purpose idea for covering up the ratty ends of an old curtain, or covering a stain or rip on an existing pillow.
