when i’ve heard how big my stand at the craft fair will be (2 x 1 meter) i thought about how to decorate it. i yet don’t know it but i knew i needed a table cloth to hide some boxes unter it.

so i got me 2 pieces of white cotton from IKEA that i will sew together in order to cover the whole table. my brother made me a stencil of my label.


with white and navy blue texile paint i’ve mixed a pretty light blue color to stencil on the fabric.

textile paint

the amount was JUST right to cover everything.

light blue paint

with a kitchen sponge it was pretty easy to dab the paint. since the template didn’t stick on the fabric it was a bit difficult to hold. the edges didn’t turn out 100% accurate but that’s fine.

ready to paint

happy happy joy joy.


yeah… welcome to idotland… don’t forget to put something under the fabric before you paint.

welcome to idiotland

my paint dried very quickly so i could remove the stencil right away. after letting it rest until it’s desert dry i had to iron it to fix.


and that’s the result.


i can’t show you how it looks like on a table but i will tell about my stand after the event. stay tuned for more :-)
