Doodle by Stitch Tablecloth – Write On, Wash Off & Lots of Laughs
The fabulous folk at Will & Glory asked us to review one of their wonderful products; the Doodle by Stitch Tablecloth – a cotton tablecloth that comes with a set of eight washable felt tips and permission to draw, write and doodle ALL over it. Weirdly fabulous!
The first outing of the Doodle cloth was when my eldest had some friends over and the sun was shining. I made them lunch, arranged it on the outside table with a pot full of the washable Doodle pens and stepped back. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a group of kids sit so long at a table! Their self portraits, covered in cake crumbs, were hilarious. Sadly, since their epic tablecloth-doodling session my iPhone died and I lost all the photos :-(
However, the next outing of the Doodle by Stitch tablecloth was a little more, heck hem, grown-up (?). I had a ladies night; a gaggle of girlfriends, quite a few cocktails and a lot of dancing. Under the bowls of nibbles and dips lay the tablecloth and the ladies were invited to write a list of the things they love. As you can imagine, after a few apple mint mojitos, some were a little too ‘personal’ to be posted here but here’s a few I’ve blurred to protect the innocent….
The cloth is made of 100% cotton drill and is pre-shrunk so bunging it in the washing machine at 40C is all you need to do. I’m pleased to report all traces of all the ‘What I Love’ confessions have disappeared and the Doodle by Stitch is ready to be used again. It comes in two sizes; large (250x148cm) and medium: (180x150cm).
I love the idea of individually drawn place settings and Happy Birthday messages. My youngest has discovered the graph paper like squares are perfect for playing the ‘squares’ game on – you know the one when each person takes a turn to draw a side of a square and when you complete one you get to write your initial in it.
The Doodle by Stitch tablecloth gets an enormous thumbs up approval from LittleStuff.
