Wearable Doilies!

I inherited many lovely doilies and books of doily patterns from my dear grandmother. I have been thinking of what to do with the vintage doilies, besides lay them on a table. I love the idea of making them wearable. You can showcase their beauty with a plain and simple background. I was so inspired by these projects I found on the web. The following are some of my favorites, I would also love to hear how you have used doilies!

Doily pockets on a simple cardigan are so pretty!

What a creative doily use- a video tutorial by ModCloth. I would love to patch up some tights!
