I must admit that I love this idea for a table cloth.
Aunt Peaches created this post sponsored by Rit Dye and here is what she had to say.
Autumn is the perfect time of year to break out the tie dye. Tell me you don’t see where I am going here…
Here is her inspiration for the design.
Before showing you how to make this, I want to say two things:
- It is really hard to take pictures while wearing rubber gloves.
- There are endless varieties of colors and patterns you can achieve with various tie-dye techniques. Rit has great information about this online. Consult with them and the directions on the package for specifics, but I can assure you it is easier than you think. Just don’t let yourself get hooked on a visual in your mind before you start the process. Embrace the unpredictable.
- One cotton flat sheet
- Half a bottle of Tangerine Rit Fabric Dye
- Half a bottle of Scarlet Rit Fabric Dye
- 20 rubber bands
- One large pot of simmering hot water

In an old pot on the stove, I mixed one quart of simmering water with half a bottle of dye, plus half a cup of salt. I stirred for a minute, then turned off the heat and dipped my big wad of fabric, starting with the lightest color first.
Isn't this creative! I can visualize this pattern in numerous colors! I think that I am going to try this on the weekend.
Check out the pumpkin!
