I will be the first to admit, I have never met a doily I didn't like! But there is just something about adding texture and dimension to a doily that really appeals to me; I have always loved the elaborate old doilies with stiff, starched ruffles, and the charming pleated look created by crocheting rounds upon rounds of ripples. And the addition of crocheted roses to any doily makes it a winner in my book! With these things in mind, I decided to create a set of doilies that featured all these elements, and using my favorite palette of bright, cheerful pastels. The result was Ripples, Ruffles and Roses a set of doilies that is any thing but ordinary! Included in this 22 page ebook are 5 unique designs; Sunshine and Blue Skies, Ripples 'Round the Rosie, Rippling Waters, Angel Face Ruffles, and Rose Petal Ruffles.
This pattern is in PDF format so you will need to be able to open Adobe Acrobat, and prints out to 22 pages. I use a large font for easier reading and add lots of pictures.
As a special gift for purchasing this ebook, you will receive a copy of my Flutter-bys Doily pattern. This sweet doily is so special to me. I remember my daughter Amanda toddling across the lawn when she was only about two years old, chasing after a butterfly and calling “Come back, flutter-by!” This doily brings back memories of that happy summer day, and I hope you will enjoy it!
