Doily Dresser Scarf

I realize that I am posting another doily project but as I said before, I love doilies. This particular project was done last fall and you saw some of it on the side table in my spare bedroom. I wanted to show you how I made it.

I have seen this done with doilies stitched together by themselves, but I wanted to put a based with mine. So I started with a piece of a lace curtain. I cut it the size of the top of my nightstand.

Here is the backside of the topper. Once I had the base cut, I began to place doilies on the lace.

I didn't fill in all areas. I did add various pieces of lace on top of the doilies. Once I liked the layout, I began to stitch the pieces down. I just stitched them on.

Although I liked the look, I wanted more, so I added lace pieces down the sides of the top.

I pinned all the pieces of lace to the top and then stitched them on my sewing machine. Still not enough, I add a piece of lace over these to make it look more finished.

I love how it turned out and it looks great on the night stand.

This project was a great way to use up some of those doilies I collect and all of the lace pieces I have in my stash.
