Doilies from Motifs Free Tatting Patterns

Here are some lovely free patterns for table top tatted doilies which have been created by using motifs to build the lace up. These will be lovely table or window decorations.

Cecelia Doily star[offsite link]
Here is a beautiful pattern designed by Cherie Wheeler just last year. The pattern is elegant yet very simple, made up of traditional style square motifs.

Circle of Crosses Doily star[offsite link]
This doily is made up of a circle of tatted crosses. You could use this idea for many other cross patterns as it is very effective.

Hearts Doily star[offsite link]
Here is a doily made up of little hearts. Very pretty! However, the illustration is rather faded and difficult to read.

Parure Ettore star[offsite link]
Here is a pretty motif doily by Edda Guastalla.

Perpetual Doily star[offsite link]
This is an interesting technique which is not seen much these days but was quite often seen in Ann OrrĀ“s books. The doily consists of straight edgings which are joined together to create a fabric.

Simple Doily star[offsite link]
This doily designed by your host only uses the simplest of shuttle and ball patterns, hence its title.

Table Runner star[offsite link]
I include this in the Doilies section because you could conceivably make a doily out of this motif pattern which is both simple and pretty.

Tatted Vanity Set star[offsite link]
This pattern is for a vanity set (otherwise known as a cheval set for reasons I have never been able to discover)with an edging to match. Unfortunately there is no illustration.
