I love my Aleene’s Fabric Stiffener!
LOS OSOS, CA – Monday morning – Mother’s Day is right around the corner so it’s time to start making a collection of these cute bowl doilies. We call them Dilly Dally Doilies because we invite you to fritter your time away, dilly dally over dessert, daydream, get inspired and savor some sweet treats in this cute bowl cover.
DILLY DALLY DOILIES
Glass custard cup(s)
Aleene’s Fabric Stiffener & Draping Liquid
Crochet doily (select size to fit slightly larger than custard cup)
Rubber band (to fit around custard cup)
Place waxed paper on work surface. Turn custard cup upside down and cover with plastic wrap. Pour Aleene’s Fabric Stiffener into plastic bag. Place doily in bag and squeeze bag to saturate doily. Remove doily, squeezing out excess stiffener as you remove from bag. Place doily over inverted cup and stretch to form and shape evenly. Place rubber band around top of cup to form crisp folded edge. (This will create the rim of the bowl.) Allow to dry overnight. Remove from bowl and discard plastic wrap.
Don’t wait until it’s too late for a special occasion to create these bowl covers. Make them now, tuck them away, and when the party calls for chocolate mousse, you’ll be half-way there! And, there’s nothing that says these pretty bowls have to be just for dessert, why not give them as a gift to hold jewelry, potpourri or special tokens! Hope you’re having loads of creative fun! >>Heidi
