DIY with Doilies!

Ok, so I've been meaning to do this tutorial for a while and finally got around to it this week with some extra free time I had!

Last year, my family recieved a bunch of family history from Slovakia (yes, thats in Europe!) after my dad's great uncle passed away and left some of his possessions to him. The packages included crosses of all different forms and sizes, and lots of doilies! We were able to put some of the crosses on display in our basement, but for the most part, we haven't really found the right place for the doilies...until now! Below are super easy steps to giving that sentimental piece a useful place a little closer to your heart (or shoulder!).

Pin the doilie (or lace) in desired positon on sweater
Sew the embellishment on, following the edge carefully.

Here are some styling ideas...
you could wear it with anything really (especially a pair of happy shoes) !
Hope you enjoyed this!
Stay happy,
Carly :)
