Last year I'd been helping a friend sort out her mother's house and she gave me quite a lot of crafting supplies. Plus this lovely table cloth that had become stained while kept in storage. The stains were very stubborn and remained there after two washes so I decided to use patchwork to cover up the stains and give the tablecloth a shabby chic look. Above is a close look at the patches while the tablecloth was on the ironing board and below is the cloth on a small side table. (And no ironing isn't one of my best skills).
