I made a red tablecloth this week to liven up my kitchen. This old dropped-leaf table has a ton of watermarks and is impossible to clean. It drives me crazy!!
But, the tablecloth gives the room some spice and flavor. I saw this fabric in the home decor decorator fabric clearance section of Denver Fabrics. It waved to me and said, "Take me home!"
To finish the edges, I turned them under 1/4", then 3/8" and stitched near edge. I mitered the corners to reduce bulk and to create a nice finished look. I did all of this while watching an episode of 'Once Upon a Time.'
A nice, easy to wash tablecloth in one of my favorite colors!
