In the latest issue of Crochet Today! Magazine (March/April, 2010), I ran across a picture of some pretty magnets made of scraps of vintage doilies. Remarkable. So, I quickly typed in the web address and found the etsy.com site of this creative vintage upcycler. She has plenty of sweet, sweet items for sale at reasonable prices.
After that, I had to keep looking. Here are some of the fantastically creative projects I discovered online.
Scroll down about halfway to see this idea. I think it could be made prettier, but this recycler gets and A+ for creativity:
Then, there’s this nifty idea on a sister craftgossip blog. Aren’t they pretty?
For more inspiration, just take a look at the great number of ideas available here. Not all vintage, but all exciting!
And, while I was meandering through the ethernet, following up on pretty vintage crochet upcycles, I ran across this exquisite vintage doily pattern that I just had to share. It costs a bit, but it’s worth it. A true beauty!
