You might remember a while ago l made a ruffled tablecloth out of a queen size bedsheet, here which used to match the dining room perfectly......until l decided to paint, so l'd been on the lookout for some fabric to make another one.
l came across a whole pile of white sheets on sale (a dollar each) at the oppy. They were very large so l only needed a couple and though they looked clean l gave them a soak in some bleach.....then got to work.
This time there was plenty of fabric so l was able to make the ruffles nice and long. The best part was having a REAL excuse to watch four episodes of Downton Abbey (in a row) while l gathered them.lol.
Once it was finished, despite it being dreary old winter here...the sun was shining in, so l took a few pics to share.
This bottle of green tea is a perfect match for my chinese-y teapot....found at Safeway it looks almost too pretty to drink. Old dress clips and clip earrings have been attached to the serviette ties.
Lots of girlie ruffles and there were enough leftover to add yet another layer....but since the tablecloth's already pretty long, there was a real danger we could strangle ourselves getting up from the table:-)))...so l didn't do it.
l really hope you've enjoyed this post as much as l have bringing it to you. Have a great rest of your week.
Til next time.
