Table Cloth Challenge; Before-pictures

OK, so now I have shown you some of mine (yes, I do believe I have a few more somewhere…), and it’s time for you to show off your table cloth(s) that you will transform into something beautiful or useful or both.

1: Post a picture of your cloth(s) on your blog mentioning the Table Cloth Challenge and with a link to this post.

2: Add the link to your specific post (not just your blog address) to Mister Linky (you’ll find an excellent explanation on how to link to a specific post here).

3: On June 1st we'll do the same with our finished projects.

4: Blog about your process or not, that's up to you!

5: Have a look around the other participants blogs for inspiration and tips.

If you don’t have a blog, email me your pictures and I’ll add them to the bottom of this post.

Mister Linky will be open for new links until the end of April, so there is plenty of time to join in. You can see more posts about the challenge here.

Feel free to copy the challenge image to your sidebar and link it to this post.

I'll start with this cloth as a background for applique

Have fun!

This is Brit's cloth


  1. I am familiar with 'Altered Books' (but don't like the thought of actually destroying the written word), but not altered table cloths! Except for in the way of having to, because of a blackcurrant stain that refuses to budge, or a hole burnt by candle wax, of course.
    I love the concept, but I am already doing the post card challenge - my steps back to creating are mere baby ones - so I'm not sure whether I'll be able to join - but I will enjoy keeping tabs on what the rest of you do.
    Your work sings!

  2. I have posted my picture of my table cloth in my blog. I don’t have any clue of what to make with it !!

  3. Mine's up! Now that it is out public in blog land I have a lot more motivation to finish my project. Thanks for the challenge.

  4. I've finally got a tablecloth and have blogged about it - am now lost and confused - LOL. Still I have lots of time to come up with something! Thanks for the challenge.

  5. I'm a friend of pinksuedeshoe's, and I just saw the link here off of your blog. I didn't take a picture of my tablecloth before I transformed it, but I just made some children's art smocks out of a vinyl tablecloth I picked up, and I LOVE them. Thanks for inspiring E. so she could inspire me. :) I blogged about it here:

  6. Phew. Made it just in time!!! Well I have my table cloth and consumed the wine and now have an idea forming. Just need to change the colour from white slightly. I can see a dunk in milky tea coming up.

  7. I think this challenge will be a lot of fun... so please count me in... Now to find a table cloth...
