Rainbow Dyed Crochet Tablecloth

I have had this lace/crochet tablecloth for years and have hardly used it.

It came from an op shop maybe 15 years ago and has been sitting in my linen press ever since. So I decided to do a little dyeing and see what happened!

When I see these tie dye kits on sale I always snap them up, even with no project in mind.

I didn’t want to actually tie dye this, so I just folded the cloth and squirted the dye on in a vaguely striped fashion, blending the colours into each other.

A few hours and a quick run through the washing machine on cold, and it was beautifully rainbow coloured!

What do you think?

      Thanks so much! Good luck with your hunt, I see them often in op shops, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble! ☺️

    More rainbows! Love how this turned out. I couldn’t have tablecloths and cats together – yours must have good understanding of safe table jumping techniques! 🤣

      Tablecloths and cats. Hmmm, I’ve had my disasters, but mostly my cats don’t jump up there much, mostly I think because I don’t use it much! (The kitchen bench is a whole different story 😾). Thank you sweetheart! X
