Red-striped Tablecloth

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!
