Crochet Pillow Options Include Doilies

Don't forget that doilies also make marvelous pillows for a room that is on the feminine side.  There are an almost endless array of motifs, and sizes as well.

This lovely pineapple pillow was created from a centerpiece doily created from National Needlecraft Leaflet A-126; all the way back to 1939.  
This Enchantment Doily is also a centerpiece at 19-1/2 inches. Combine it with a dark, or brightly colored fabric and it would become a marvelous couch accent.  

This Dainty Doily, at 26 inches,  is complex and eye catching!  The official "Dainty Doily name" seems a bit misplaced!

Now, the pillow doesn't have to be round ... this beauty of a medallion pattern to create the Dew Drop Doily Mat can be created at sizes of your choice and also has the WOW factor.  
This pattern is available as a Free Download.

Choose your doily pattern based on pillow size if you are using purchased pillow stock, or create a customized size with Poly-Fill.  The doily is stitched to the pillow top.   If you'd like, you could also use 'Wonder-Under to further secure your fiber art to the fabric. 

There's a ton of crochet doilies, as  well as crochet squares/medallions in the shop, should you care to browse.

Thanks for dropping by,
