After sitting in a drawer, carefully wrapped in tissue, for over 50 years, I have finally found a lovely use for these delicate cotton crocheted doiiies, masterfully made by my dear late Aunt Ruth.  I clearly remember, as a ten year old, watching in total amazement,  as her hands would fly at what seemed like the speed of light, as she hooked and twirled her tiny, shiny silver crochet hook, through miniscule loops of blue and white cotton crochet thread.  In about an hour, she'd produce the doilly you see here.  I have decided to part with them, and have dyed them in four colors, stiffened, and stretched them over my top secret, improvised brim block!!  The result is this very delicate, spider-like lacey hat, hand decorated in ribbon flowers on the wired brim, and a lavender ribbon, woven through the crown, with tiny lavender ribbon roses, and an accent of a silk rose, and ribbon leaves.  Securely held in place with a discreet milliners elastic worn under the hair. Graceful and feminine, and just perfect for a wedding, church, a Downton Abbey inspired garden party, or any where you want to feel special.  Guaranteed to get you noticed!!  One size fits all. Comes also in lime green, cherry red, and coral pink with purple tips.  A one of a kind piece of couture millinery!! I think Aunt Ruth would approve!!
