>3 down out of 208 opps 212

>Remember those doilies I found at the thrift Well, I found 4 more of the same pattern; must have missed them last time. Plus, I bought a 50 cent ball of thread that had another doily in a different pattern half done inside of it. So I started to take the half done doily apart because I didn’t like the way the person had done it. But I like the center part, so I stopped and thought what could I do to save the middle part and make it useful to me and my family. So I came up with this idea; I am sure others have thought of it before because it is so simple. Take doily and make a hair bun cover or a snood. I took photos while I was making the second one so I will post a tutorial later in the next 2 to 4 days. I used up 3 of those 208 doilies which are now 212 doilies.

1st one from the doily found in the 50 cent ball of thread:

1st one 3/4 view
1st one side view

2nd and 3rd ones:

4th one:

All four together with three silly girls! Because I was making these out of already-made doilies, they are the color of the original doily, but they would be cute in real bright colors to match spring and summer outfits or holiday themes.

    >These are really cute! I can picture your girls all wanting to try them! I am trying to figure out how you made them stay on–with elastic or attached to some kind of hair band? Looking forward to your tutorial on this one, as well!
