Tea-Dyed Doily on Etsy

Measuring 11 inches across, this crocheted doily has a stylized sun circled by rows of waves. It was crafted in bedspread cotton using a small steel hook, and the natural shaded thread was dyed in black tea to a rich beige..

It is of sturdy construction yet delicate in appearance. Lovely as a dining table centerpiece, or under a bedside lamp, this doily is appropriate for primitive, Victorian, or shabby decor.

Here it is a few rows from the edge.

Here's what it looked like when it was just finished, prior to tea-dying and blocking.

Preparing to dye in black tea.
