Crochet Doily Patterns

Doilies were popular as home decorating accessories for generations of homemakers. Today, they are popular not only as home décor for dining and living rooms, but as appliqués for personal accessories as well.

Use free crochet doily patterns to add old-fashion charm to a sideboard or buffet with a table runner. Highlight a grouping of figurines with a round, ruffled doily on a table or mantle.

Doilies add a finishing touch to Early American or 19th century style homes.

Small doilies can be stitched to tote bags or purses to add retro pizzazz or mounted and framed to display an intricate piece safely and stylishly.
