For the love of Damask……

Damask is a reversible fabric often with a raised or shiny side and a flat, less shiny side. The yarn used is often silk, cotton, linen or wool. The pattern is formed by the weaving. The most common things made from damask are table cloths, bed linen and fabric for clothing.
I love damask bed Linen which is out of my budget. Although I may just save up and purchase some sheets one day!.
So what’s my alternative.? Recycle the collection of white damask table cloths I have. When I get more than can fit into my table cloth draw they become pillow slips for our bed…. They are beautiful to sleep on!

Of course I’ve been spoilt over the years picking up these table cloths for a few dollars each. A small to medium table cloth will get to pillow slips.
