lace pillowcases How to Tea Stain personalized wedding gifts

Updated: 2020-01-20 12:38Font Size: LMS

As I mentioned in a previous post, I had to tea stain a whole bunch of lace to use as table clothes. I love the look of tea stain opposed to plain white. It makes things (especially lace) look more antique and expensive. Also, I wasn’t keen on white tablecloths because my dress is white and I don’t want to match the table clothes! The things you have to think about as a bridelace pillowcases, right?

So this diy project is super simple and can be done with any fabric of any size. First I ran my bath tub full of HOT water. While that was filling up, I boiled about 10 cups of water on the stove and put in it half a box (20 bags) of family sized, generic tea bags. I let that boil until the water was nice and dark and the bath tub was full enough to cover the 15 table clothes I had to stain. I put the table clothes in the tub first and then poured the brewed tea water in with them. I mixed the water around with my hand and let the concoction sit until I felt like the color was where I wanted it (about 7 minutes in my case). I drained the water and then transferred the lace to my washer where I ran a quick wash with NO detergent. Then I dried it all in my dryer and that was it. Easy as that!

Aside from trying to drink the tea out of the tub, Harper is such a good helper!

Note: Originally I was worried about the tea staining our porcelain bath tub, but I tested a small cub of it first and had no issues, so no fear!

I put the tea stained lace next to white lace so you can see the difference.

Have you tea stained anything for your wedding?

Welcome to the fourth and final week of our Organic Challenge! This week, we’re focusing on some household item transitions that will dramatically cut down your exposure to toxic chemicals. Many of the chemicals found in the average home have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer, and psychological abnormalities. Just like the other Organic Challenge products, many of the chemicals listed below have never been adequately tested for negative health effects. For example, products that kill 50% of lab animals through ingestion or inhalation can still be designated “non-toxic.”

If you are a midnight sewer like I am, you know the feeling of being in the “zone”, making progress on a project you love, and then it happens. You don’t have the right fabric, the best tool, or the perfect color cord to finish your project. Well, when you need the perfect color cord, try creating custom cord with BERNINA Braiding Foot #21. You can make almost any color cord and use it for creating ties, finishing edges, or couching embellishments. And, the best part is, that you probably already have the supplies to make it.
