No sew doily scarf

by Eilleen

Hello everyone!

Well, its proven to be a cold winter here in Australia's capital. While the temps have been around the 10 degree celsius mark (about 50 degrees farenheit), freezing winds with a chill factor of about -1 C (or 30 F)have been sweeping through much of the southern east coast.

Anyway, I thought I'd share this easy, frugal (and green) idea for a scarf. Basically, grab a few doilies together.

Tie the doilies end to end with a ribbon.

And voila! A scarf.

I wish you all a fun weekend ahead. :)

This doily scarf is fabulous and very romantic in appearance.

looks lovely and it's wonderfully retro ... but do people still have doilies hanging around?
thanks for sharing

I love doilies...I'm collecting them to make jug covers....there are many things you can do with doilies...and there are some beauties in op-shops screaming out to be saved....
also wanted to say I love the new look of the blog too....fantastic.

Thanks all and I'm glad you guys liked the scarf. I actually raided my parents cupboard for the doilies. They haven't used their doilies in a long while!!

I am also thinking of taking this scarf apart and making something else I've been wanting to make for a while. Stay tuned!
