I recently was approached by two of my favorite bloggers/ YouTubers and asked if I would like to do a collaboration. If you know Chloe from Boxwood Avenue and Sarah from Rocky Hedge Farm, you will know why I screamed and said “YES!” rather quickly.

The idea was we would all take the same linen tablecloth from Target and make something different with it.
The thing I loved about this is that you could do these projects with a thrifted tablecloth or a hand me down or whatever you might have laying around. I encourage you to start seeing linen when you are out and about and snatch it up for great upcycling fun!
I decided to turn mine into a light summery blanket with a macrame trim!

I love the blotchy look that I got by not stirring the fabric when I was dying it. It feels very weathered and vintage to me, kind of like an old flag. I think it will be perfect for the Fourth of July and really all summer long.
You can watch the Boxwood Avenue video and the Rocky Hedge Farm video to see what they came up with. And if you want to know how to create one of the bouquets like I have in this picture, watch this video.
Now, you tell me do you look for linen tablecloths when you are out thrifting? What other things would you recommend??
