Mini doily or jar topper - free crochet pattern


Here's a pretty little doily that's also a jar topper. Doily is 5 inches in diameter and would fit a jar lid that's about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. (also shown in photo are the denim thread ties that I made from recycled denim jeans)


Here's a blue one on a jar. I used ordinary 1/8-inch satin ribbon as tie.

I am a vintage sewing machine collector. I'm going to crochet this in red and use it as a spool pin doily on my black Featherweight sewing machines. I love how dainty they look!!
