I have a crappy Target-five-years-ago kitchen table. But one thing I like about it is that it is the perfect size for vintage tablecloths. And I love a good vintage tablecloth. I snagged a couple of them at an estate sale a few weeks ago and I was so excited.
Until I put them in the wash and this happened to one of them.

But did I throw it out? Nay.
I set out to salvage it with my handy sewing partner.

He's not the greatest sewing partner, he pretty much just sits there, but he's cute so I keep him around.

I rummaged though my fabric bin and found a light blue and white striped fabric that I could use to cover the middle where the holes are.

A few stitches later, I had a salvaged tablecloth.
And stripes and floral together are in, didn't you hear?

This isn't the first time I've saved a dying vintage tablecloth - check out what else you can do.
