I can’t decide whether I think this is a brilliant idea or a terrible one. Encouraging your children to draw on the table? Hmm. Foolish? Actually, I love it. Would save on the myriad of paper scraps cluttering up my kitchen at least. It goes like this. Draw or write on the cotton graph-paper pattern tablecloth while dining. Wash (in the machine at 40 degrees) and repeat. Â£35 from Stitch Design Works plus Â£5 for the pens
Â£55 from Cox & Cox, plus Â£7 for the pens. This pricing and source of the tablecloth was updated 10th April 2011.
