making our table cloths

We used tie-dyeing to dye our table cloths.  

Ruby table used red.

Opal table used yellow.

Sapphire table used blue.

Diamond table used purple.

Emerald table used green.


First we had to twist handfuls of fabric and secure it with an elastic band.

Then we had to mix the dye.  We needed to add salt and water.

After that we soaked the cloth in the dye.

We had to leave it for 20 minutes.

Mrs Hovell very kindly took it home and washed the cloth in her washing machine.

What do you think of the results?

After snack time, we have to carefully fold up our table-cloths.  This involves team work.
