Quick Christmas Doily...

This is a quick and easy Christmas doily.
Size is approximately 14 inches in diameter.
I used a fun Christmas fabric, felt for the backing, fusible fleece interfacing to give it substance and a fun flirty ribbon ruffle.
You can machine stitch all layers together.
I choose to handstitch the ruffle on just so the back stayed smooth.
This makes a nice protector for any holiday table.
This could be used for a centerpiece with a lovely clear glass vase or candlestick.
How would you use something like this?
Happy Holiday Creating...


  1. What a perfect holiday piece - love the fun fabric and the ruffle is a great edging for it. I think it's too nice to put anything on, so perhaps a small vase so just the centre would be covered up.

    Happy crafting xx

  2. Gorgeous!!! I saw somewhere, the same idea but rectangle, for a coffee mug placemat, this would work for that too!
    That is really nice fabric...where did you find faery fabric!!!! What sweet pj's it would make!
