I think I'm going with this doily I crocheted years ago. It should be a good base for embroidering a mandala on it with the flannel colors. Going to hit walmart for the hoop and some more turquoise thread. I will be able to utilize more of the lace I bought last week if I go this way.
I really like the layered look with the hankie and dyed doily but I want to keep the coat a little more neutral so I can wear it with more outfits.
I may line the cuffs and color with the hankies. TOO MANY IDEAS!
