The pattern for this filet crochet doily was nothing else but a picture from an old gift bag. When I came across it last year, I thought that I’d better save it as it can easily be used as a pattern for cross-stitching or filet crochet.
I used it for both. The cross-stitch reindeer design was perfect for a small Christmas card. And a matching filet crochet doily only took two evenings to make. I didn’t have much time to come up with any fancy edging, so I just used two rounds of shells.
This will be my last post this year as I’m taking a holiday break from both crocheting and blogging until January.
