shabby chic patchwork repair

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).

The pattern on the print complements the lace pattern on the tablecloth, very pretty. I'm rather interested in creative mending, do you know Japanese boro work?

I like the patchwork tablecloth, very cute! A nice way to re-cycle the stained tablecloth. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Lucy - thanks, no I haven't heard of Japanese boro work, but I have a feeling i may have seen some without it being given a name...
