Good Morning Darlings!
I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July weekend with family and friends. My sewing project for the last few weeks have been working on was designing a tablecloth for my kitchen table. I wanted a tablecloth on the table to protect the table from spills, hot dishes, and sticky hands. To my surprise I could not find one store that sold square tablecloths. I went to Walmart, Target, World Market, and other popular chain stores.
I ended up going to Joann's to find fabric to sew my own tablecloth sense I could not find a square one for my kitchen table. I decided to go with the same fabric I used to sew my curtains hanging in the kitchen window.
However, I wanted to do something different so I decided cut the floral print fabric down into a smaller square and add brown fabric around it.
Keep in mind I never sewed a tablecloth before but it seem simple enough for me to do.
I cut the brown fabric in an angle so when I sewed it all together it will make a almost perfect square.
I also found another contrasting print fabric and attach it to the square.
I ended up adding row after row until I had ended up with enough fabric to cover the entire table. I believe it turned out pretty nice for my first try.
