A Vintage Project

 
I have been working on this project for quite some time.  When I use old, vintage lace and doilies, I sew them all on by hand.  Usually, I sew the lace down on both sides so it will lay flat.
 
This is an organizer that I finished up yesterday.  It is made out of Designer Linen and almost completely covered with vintage laces, doilies and linens.  I love the look!

 
Many of the doilies and lace pieces are pockets besides the two big pockets.

 
I folded the top over one of the wooden clothes hangers I had spray painted off white and closed it with Velcro across the back.
 
My Mother would have loved this!
 
Enjoy!
 
Till next time, Judy

  5. This is so absolutely beautiful, Judy! Very romantic. I bet it took some time but it was well worth it.

    I saw a picture online somewhere where an old wooden hanger was on a hook in a bathroom and the hand towel was folded over it. I like the idea so much but I'm hard pressed to find a wood hanger!! Hubby has some but the are very thick and bulky. And ideas?

  6. Like Jane, I wonder where you find the vintage wood hangers. Thrift stores just will not sell theirs, even when I offered to pay extra for the one the jacket was on that I bought.

    It's so sweet and I just love little pockets!

  7. Love anything on a vintage hanger. I always can find them at estate sales - usually stuffed in the back of a closet. This organizer is beautiful. It satisfies my love of lace!

  11. It s so nice to use all those old doilies. I always feel bad about all the work that went into them and they are hidden away.
