Rescue Stained Textiles with a Cool Graphic Pattern

Design*Sponge

Spilled a glass of wine on your favorite tablecloth? No need to buy a new one: Design*Sponge has shared some brilliant inspiration for extending the life of flawed textiles. Just cut out the shape of your choice in fabric (and fusible webbing), iron on, and sew. We love the choice of colors and the modern shape of the example here. More details, and a detailed photo, after the jump.

This idea works for much more than tablecloths-- think pillow covers, comforters, placemats, even sofa cushions. Not only can it cover stains, it can also be a way to revitalize something you've gotten a little tired of. For all the great green products out there, our favorite way to decorate responsibly is to make the stuff we already have last longer. Visit Design*Sponge for the full how-to instructions.
