A WIP and sequins everywhere....

Here's a WIP I'm working on:
 
 
This is the pattern:
 
 
It's older than me! But just as lovely today as it was back when it was published.
 
It's a baby shawl but so far I think it would be really pretty as a doily too.
 
~~
 
At the weekend I bought some really shiny pink and purple sequins and this morning I wanted to have a closer look so I got the plastic tray out and started pulling at the sticky tape that was holding it together and......
 
 
 
....that happened! Sequins everywhere!
 
 
All over the floor too :(
 
But half an hour later I'd got them all organized into tidy little bags
 
 
much better :)
 
I'm thinking about what I can make with them right now. What would you do with them?

  1. The lace shawl/doily is so beautiful and delicate. Sequins...you are brave, especially after the big mess.

  2. So patient to pick up all those sequins and organise them like that. I probably would have lost the plot and hoovered up the lot in frustration. Sequins are too fiddly for me I'm afraid, so no suggestions here from me. They are very pretty colours though.

  4. Lep je milje koji heklaš!
    Bravo što si uspela da skupiš perlice:)
    Stavi perlice na konac i heklaš nešto ineresantno.
    Pozdrav!:)

  5. Your pattern looks nice and delicate! I have lot of sequins and generally use them as embellishments for my daughter's dresses and some crafty things.

  10. Beautiful shawl/doily. It's going to be gorgeous when it's done. I've never done anything with sequins so I don't have any ideas for you. I don't envy you having to pick them all up off of the floor though. :-)
    Blessings,

  14. They dioly is lovely.
    I would put the sequins at the border to add weight to the doily and then use it for summer drinks cover, to keep flies away !!

    P.D: I'm making my first shawl :-D

    For the sequins...I love the colors you choose, you can sew them on your doily...on the plain parts...

    Have a shinny day !

  16. Lovely doily it's gorgeous. I'd love to make them, are they very difficult for a fairly new crocheter?

  17. Fabulous! Oh the sequins all over would have drove me nuts! I would have lost it! Not sure what to do with them, I did make a christmas ornament one time that was a styrophom ball with sequins stuck with straight pins all over it! Hahaha!
    Have fun and I am sure what ever you make it will be stunning!!

  18. Your doily is looking beautiful.

    I've got a few bags of sequins myself which I usually use on my cardmaking mainly as centres for my paper flowers to add a bit of sparkle.

  19. Hi Liz
    Goodness me this will be an amazing baby shawl - with love worked into every stitch I'm sure. A work of art to become a treasured family heirloom in the future.
