Divine Doily Roses

I have had great pleasure recently using up my stash of doilies to make these fantastic doily roses... I have sewn them on to anything that stays still! Bags, cushions and this felt storage tub!
On this one I put a circle of tule under each doily 'rosette' for added texture and I secured them to the fabric below with a zig zag circle, tucked just under the outer line of the next doily. I finshed this one off with some french script cotton tape (I bought on etsy) for a stem and a lovely vintage style sparkly button in the centre. Sweet!
