Fun with Doilies

Well I have been very busy making things for my new shop Persnickety.  Today I thought I'd make some bowls from doilies. It seemed relatively easy. I got the doilies for $1 each and the fabric stiffener at a local craft store. They only had green and yellow which works for Easter/Spring.
I took some bowl out of my cupboard and covered the bowls with plastic wrap, the site also says wax paper, but some reported that the doily stuck to the wax paper.

I then poured the stiffener into an old tupperware and saturated the doilies one at a time.  Making sure to flip it over so that I got every thread.

I then laid the doilies over the bowls to dry.  This is as far as I've gotten.  They have been drying now for a little over an hour. 

This is as far as I got. i got excited and wanted to share.  I will be sure to update with how they turned out!

Well I've started making more products for my newest venture, Persnickety.  I would be walking about my favorite craft store and find all these other crafts and ideas pop into my head, but then didn't fit into Angela's Embellished Boxes so I created Persnickety.  I just finished up a couple pieces late last night that I still have to take pictures of.  I like being able to work on these other crafts in between working on my boxes.  What are some things you do in your spare time?
