I have made a doily with a lace bow - love making new doilies and the temptation with this design was too strong - and this is the result :-)

The lace bow design is from Just Lace collection from Sue Box.

Everytime I see one of your doily's, I wish I had a bigger hoop size.
I would love to be able to make all these gorgeous designs like you do, but will continue to admire the ones you create.

This is so pretty. I looked twice before I realised it is the bow design.

Thanks for your comment and thanks again for the correction: it's a bow and not just a ribbon :-)

Lidia, you keep showing us how to think outside the box...love it! How do you manage to make the fabric centre? I'm assuming that you use w/s stabilizer but when do you cut away the fabric to give the lace edging? Using your ideas I stitched out a doily with Sue's geranium corner and her versatile doily #1 yesterday...I just put it to soak to remove the w/s stabilizer so it's not ready for a picture yet. Maybe later!!

Thanks for your comment. In order to attach the fabric centre to the water soluble stabilizer, I have created an inner contour stitching in my software. After the contour stitching has been stitched out onto the fabric, I have trimmed the fabric and then stitched the free-standing lace design. I can't wait to see your geranium doily :-)
Hugs, Lidia

That makes such good sense! I'll have to try it one day. Right now I'm on a roll making several doilies using Sue's designs. They are just fabulous. Thanks for your help. Avis

Sounds like I might be able to make one. What size inner circle did you use? I don't have software so your help would be appreciated?
