Doily Rug Crafting

This Doily Rug Crafting a Meaningful Home by Ladies & Gentleman Studio in Seattle. Inspired by doilies, and using rope instead of yarn, designer Jean Lee shares how to crochet it yourself.

Jean’s obsession with vintage doilies grew to epic proportions when she created these full size area rugs using cotton rope. Inspired? Make your own with the book instructions or buy an already-made one.

We have a soft spot in our hearts for doilies, so imagine the pitter-pat when we saw these giant doily rugs! Soft on the feet, easy on the eye, they would make a pigsty seem elegant. They’re perfect for anyone who needs to live large.

This crafting can put to your home interior and inspiring interior idea.
