Here it is - a printable, easy-peasy pattern.
Just for you!
This easy, but unique pattern includes two vintage linens.
I used a linen whitework tea towel that had lovely drawn thread embroidery.
I usually will only cut one of these if the tea towel is stained or damaged.
The rectangular doily pictured is in excellent condition and is only tacked down with surface stitching. It can be removed later if desired. This doily is probably part of a three piece duchess dresser set or an armchair set. Sadly, I only have the one piece. It would have come with a matching piece identical in size to place over the other arm of the chair (if the armchair set) and a large piece to place over the back of the armchair. I have seen the large matching back piece online. Perhaps the makers grew tired of the pattern after making the one doily.
Detail of the whitework.
I did quilt a simple outline border within the whitework.
My other quilting stitches are hidden within the drawn threads.
The filet crochet has roses within the pattern.
