Cheese cloth table runners

Has anyone bought bulk cheese cloth and dyed them yourself for table runners? I was reading that I need to buy grade 60 cheese cloth. Is this correct? Also, where have you found it for the cheapest? And any tips and tricks for dying them and hanging them to dry??

    Hey Elizabeth, I used the fixative as an insurance plan to avoid any color transfer. I didn’t want to risk it.

    Hi Rachel!
    Did you use bleached or unbleached cheesecloth to make these?

    Hi Tessa!


    I just used the bleached cheesecloth. I cut mine down to the size I wanted before I dyed it too. That helped with moving it in and out of the dye and with laying it out to dry. Here’s the link to what I used!

    My mother-in-law dyed 100 yards of cheese cloth for me in 3 parts in her top load washer for me last summer. My wedding was 10-19-19. Our wedding colors were dark purple, navy, and copper. I bought 10 bottles of eggplant RIT dye and 10 fixative. Here is the link to the cloth I bought: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07365JHTC?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share

    Here are some pictures of how mine turned out. My mother-in-law cut the 100 yard roll into 3 pieces and dyed them in her washer for me I think she used about 15ish bottles of eggplant dye and maybe 5 of fixitive.

    Hi Briauna, I think I chose the bleached just so I could start with a blank white fabric. The unbleached has a light tan “natural” color to it already, and I didn’t want that to affect the shade I was dying them. Looking back, it probably wouldn’t have made much of a difference. The color came out a little more coral than peach but it worked out! I’ll attach a few pics of them for reference. I definitely recommend making a small batch of the dye first and use a piece of the fabric to test the color first! Hope this helps! Congratulations and happy planning!
