Grandma's Doily.


Here's one thing I learnt to make, thanks to my grandmother. To make these doilies she would use tulle, crochet cotton and glass beads, in my version I used wooden beads.
I remember she would use these doilies to cover her milk jugs and sugar bowls to protect the contents from houseflies and other tiny flying insects.
I think we can still use them today.
This is a very simple and inexpensive craft to make. I used left over tulle from old wedding favors, wooden beads with a hole big enough to make a crochet hook pass through and white crochet cotton .




Ecco una cosa che ho imparato a fare grazie a mia nonna. Per fare questi centrini lei usava del tulle, filo di cotone per uncinetto e perline di vetro, nella mia versione ho usato perline di legno.
Ricordo che usava questi centrini per coprire il bricco del latte e la zuccheriera, per proteggere il contenuto da mosche e altri piccoli insetti volanti.
Io penso che potremmo ancora utilizzarli oggi.
Questo lavoretto non è costoso ed è semplice da fare. Ho usato il tulle di vecchie bomboniere, perline di legno con un grosso foro, per far passare l'uncinetto e del cotone bianco per uncinetto.

hi Sue,
Yep, i love these doilies too. Difficult to find in a shop maybe impossible. They are so...times gone by and they look really good on a glass! Beautiful!

Oh how lovely that you make these Sue and what a beautiful memory of our dear Grandmother. I remember her always having these on her jars and jugs and you know what Sue, Mum has one over her sugar bowl too! Thanks for such a sweet journey down memory lane : )

Hugs
Doreen

Sono sempre belli questi "lavoretti di una volta" che uniscono alla semplicità della funzione il fascino dei ricordi.
Brava!

I had never seen these before until a girlfriend was looking for some last year. These are great and look so easy. Hmmmm, she just may be getting some in the mail! lol

These are the neatest things! They are so much prettier than just using foil! I sure wish I knew how to crochet or knit!
