This year I wanted to try something new, so I ordered some 3-1/2" Round Clear Acrylic Christmas Ornament Embroidery Blank and planned to fill them with circular netting. Since the space where the doilies were to go was smaller than most of my doilies, I needed to resize some doilies.
Several years ago I found this net doily center. I tried it and then adjusted the size to about 5 inches. Now I needed to make it about half as small - about 2.5 inches.
By changing my mesh sticks or gauges to a smaller size, I was able to resize this doily. I had some tatting thread someone had given me. I started with a small amount of green thread and then realized that it would not be enough to complete the project. Since I did not seem to have any more of that exact shade of green, I decided to finish the tiny doily with a golden colored thread.
