What are you most proud of? I made an AC skirt that really didn't look that great on me so I've cut it up to make gifts. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Here are the dimensions to make a smaller size doily: 1. Trace off another petal pattern piece and the cut off the 1/4 seam allowance. Leave the 1/2 inch SA on the straight side. 2. Cut 15 petals and construct petals as for the original size 3. Cut 2 center circles 7 3/8 inches in diameter. 4. Sew the doily in the same manner as the larger size keeping the 1/4 inch SA. 5. The finished doily will be 11 inches in diameter That's it!
