Kitsch thrill - tablecloth made from tea towels
I saw this really fun project in an old Better Homes and Gardens magazine I borrowed from the local library (August 2010). The project calls for using a collection of retro chic tea towels and turning them into a wonderful fun tablecloth.
I "borrowed" some of my mothers tea towel collection (collected during the 70's on an around Australia roadtrip) and washed, ironed and matched up similar sized tea towels. My tablecloth is made of a three by three grid of tea towels and I think the resulting tablecloth'll be just right for a family barbeque this summer.
