Waste Not Want Not Doily

I love to crochet and have been doing it almost all of my life. One thing I like to do is make doilies out of regular white or off-white crochet cotton, then dye or tie-dye them in spectacular bright colors. I use procion dyes, and sometimes I immerse the doilies, and sometimes I squirt or paint the dye on. These can be hand washed and laid flat to dry.

This doily was crocheted from scraps of cotton left over from other projects, then tie-dyed in shades of pink. It measures 7.5 inches square. Pretty for Valentine's Day or anytime.

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept payment through paypal and direct Etsy payment. I think this is the fastest and safest way to pay for online purchases. And it's convenient because you have the option of using your checking account or your credit card. Please pay within 3 days of ordering. After 3 days, I will relist the item.

Returns & exchanges

While my hope is that everyone will enjoy their purchase, if you are dissatisfied for any reason, I will accept returns for a full refund.

Shipping policies

I ship via USPS, first class. I will send your purchase the following business day. First class takes about 3 business days withing the U.S. It varies for international orders. If you would like to have something sent faster, via priority or express mail for example, you can convo me and we will figure out the additional charge.

Additional policies

FYI, I am not able to take special orders at this time, due to problems with my thumbs.
