Description

Large old fashion, country style tablecloth with green apple embroidery is hand made using reverse stitch technique from “Alabama Stitch Book”. The top layer is linen: ivory with pink, orange and green stripes. Underneath each motif there is a green cotton jersey panel that was hand stitched to the top layer with red cotton yarn. Each apple branch was hand stenciled using hand made stencils and red fabric paint. The embroidery runs along both long sides of the cloth.

Green Apples Tablecloth is for sale in my Etsy Koti Koti store: www.koti.etsy.com

    Lovely! I’m curious — how did you prevent the linen from fraying? I know Natalie uses strictly jersey because it won’t unravel.

      the fabric paint keeps it from fraying nicely, but I didn’t wash it yet. I hope it will stay same if I’m very gentle.

    Wow, amazing! This must’ve been a lot of work.

    This is fantastic! I just finished an Alabama stitch corset top and I love it. Was contemplating making a tablecloth myself and this is such great motivation!
