Lace Doily

This is a famous lace work in Egypt. It is something similar to Romanian lace point, and also similar to the needle point work yet different from both of them.

 stages of making this kind of doily
outline stage 
In this stage I outline the pattern after I put it on some layers of fabric, and tack it using a sewing needle.

Joining the parts, and make the bars,
after the outline stage I joined the touched parts using an invisible stitch, then start to make the little bars using and embroidery thread, and sewing needle.
 Making Lace  stitches,
This doily has just four different lace stitches. Here a close look at them, and also the center

The final stage is removing the sewing thread, and the fabric,

You should visit lebanon and learn how to do these.
They are wayyy better.
Egyptians dont really know how to do them.
