doily pillow tutorial + new work from alice stevenson


it’s diy day at d*s so i couldn’t resist sharing this fun doily pillow tutorial from rachel at smile and wave. i’ve still got a boatload of doilies left from a failed wedding project so i’ve been looking for something fun to do with them, and this project is perfect. rachel has posted the full step-by-step instructions on her site, so check them out here and make your own doily pillow.




and just for a little extra morning eye-candy: beautiful new work from alice stevenson. click here to check out her latest illustrations online and here to check out new releases on alice’s blog.

The doily pillow is cute but I don’t understand why it says for non-commercial use only on the site with the instructions. There isn’t a patent on sewing doilies together (or my Grandma would have it :)

I have so many doilies that I salvaged out of my grandmother’s attic, but they’ve been stashed away in a trunk for the last year. I cannot wait to check out this tutorial. Thanks!!

Also, the illustrations are so pretty! I love the color scheme of the last one.

I’m not digging all the doily focus lately. They feel really musty to me.

i know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, for sure. but i did a quick search and only found 3 posts with doilies on d*s in the past 4 months…hope that’s not too much of a focus ;)

Hmmm…feel like I saw a doily tableau you did for House Beautiful or another print design mag? Perhaps I just developed an aversion to them as a result of my Mother’s unabashed gusto for them

we used a few doilies in a piece we styled for HB in november, but it wasn’t a ds post. i def. don’t think we’ve gone too doily crazy over here. if anything i think i need to ween off of plaid posts for a while ;)

Now, I can never get enough of plaids, but that’s why I don’t have a fabulous design blog! :)

i know, right? i looked around my house the other day and was like “woah, grace. take it easy on the plaid”
