Battenburg Freestanding Lace Snowflake Doily

Delicate and lovely, Battenburg lace is a popular type of lace that is commonly used in ornate lace tablecloths, curtains, and wedding dresses. Stitch a lovely Battenburg lace snowflake doily from freestanding lace pieces, for a graceful seasonal decoration.

Please note that Battenburg lace requires the use of cotton thread. A 40 weight rayon or polyester thread will not work as it will not hold up the delicate stitches. Choose 50 weight 100% cotton sewing thread, or for a bit heartier look, use 30 weight Madeira Cotona or 30 weight 100% cotton sewing thread. 


These new lace doilies are available in three different sizes -- the large fits a 5 x 7 hoop, the medium size fits a 5 x 7 hoop, and the small fits a 4 x 4 hoop. Once they're pieced together, the large doily has a diameter of 15 1/4 inches, the medium size has a diameter of 11 1/4 inches, and the small size has a diameter of 9 inches.

Click here for free project instructions on stitching this beautiful Battenburg lace doily.
 
Available in three sizes:
** 5" X 7" (15 1/4" diameter finished)    ** 5" X 7" (11 1/4" diameter finished)
** 4" X 4" (9" diameter finished)
