Crochet Doily Bowls

By:

7 Comments

Use fabric stiffener to create decorative bowls with crochet doilies. These pretty little bowls are perfect for filling with jelly beans and other favors on Easter. Create one for every guest at the table or use to serve dessert any time of the year. This project comes to us compliments of Heidi Borchers for Inspired at Home.

Listen to Heidi talk about this craft project. (mp3)
 

Stiffened Crochet Doily Bowl
 

Materials:

  • Crochet doily (select size to fit custard cup)- You can use this doily crochet pattern.
  • Glass custard cup
  • Waxed paper
  • Plastic wrap
  • Plastic bag
  • Aleene’s Fabric Stiffener™
  • Rubber band (to fit around custard cup)


Instructions:

  1. Place waxed paper on work surface. Turn custard cup upside down and cover with plastic warp.
     
  2. Pour stiffener into plastic bag. Place doily in bag and squeeze bag to saturate doily. Remove doily, squeezing out excess stiffener as you remove from bag.
     
  3. Place doily over inverted cup and stretch to form and shape evenly. Place rubber band around top of cup to form crisp folded edge. (This will create the rim of the bowl.) Allow to dry overnight. Remove from bowl and discard plastic wrap.


Heidi’s Designer Tip: Don’t wait until it’s too late for a special occasion to create these bowl covers. Make them now, tuck them away, and when the party calls for chocolate mousse, you’ll be half-way there! And, there’s nothing that says these pretty bowls have to be just for dessert, why not give them as a gift to hold jewelry, potpourri or special tokens!

Thank you Heida. Years ago people use to mix sugar and water, then wet the doily with this mixture and shape the doily to and lay in the sun for several hours. I tried this several years ago trying to get my doily to stand up in a ruffle effect. Yours sounds so much easier. Thanks.

She's just showing you how to make the bowl. It will work with any pattern. I'm making a large bowl from a pineapple pattern.

I was disappointed that the instructions for Crochet Doily Bowls was not the one shown in the picture covering the custard cup. Would you please correct this and make the pattern available. Thank you.

Zacorra, I am sure they just used that pattern as a suggestion. You can use any pattern that you would like. There are so many beautiful doily patterns out there for us to use. I have made bowls like this for years. I have used many different sized doilies depending on the size bowl that I want. I do not think the author of this article is being deceptive at all. She was giving us a suggestion.

I don't see any reason for being deseptive about a pettern except pure shelishness. If you look close, the beautiful doily in the photo, which covers the outside of the bowl very well with it's tight pattern, is NOT the same one the pattern is for. The idea is really nice but why do you need to spoil it with a LIE? The pattern you provide is open, loopy UGLY compared to the one in the photo. Where is the pattern for the doily in the photo??? THAT is the pattern I want and the one we all expect deserve for being your patrons.

This is beautiful I made it for a friend who just returned home from the hospital I put bright flowers in it and it sure put a smile on her face. Thanks for the pattern. Three cheers for FaveCrafts.....
