I had a square white tablecloth I found at a garage sale that I was keeping to use for something else (meaning, cutting and up cycling into something else.)
So I decided to try to dye it with the Indigo kit we used the other day. I got it wet and set it on the table. I started turning it around, from the middle, like a sunburst. Then I tied it with rubber bands.
Let it sit for about 30 minutes and then untie it.
Not as much blue as I thought it was going to get. I wonder if I turned it too tight, maybe? But I like it. Siena says “it will go well with the darker napkins.” Yes it will. Let’s see.
So of course we used them for dinner that same evening, even a little wet on some spots. We couldn’t tell and didn’t mind. Because, we have to do those types of things sometimes.
I love the napkins! We actually have 7, the other ones were still too wet to use… and there were only 4 of us anyway.
And so we set it up so we could take a picture at the end of our hard day at work.
I love the fresh fruit colors, the summer right here with us.
Red, yellow, orange, green, and indigo? Love it! Perfect choice for dinner.
And we also noticed…
… this has been a blue year, for sure. Look in the background, the furniture. And remember we changed Siena’s room few months ago? Blue too. I like it. We must all like it I guess, or at least two of us! I wonder what color will bring next year.
