Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Tablecloth Fabric – Yardage to be determined by the table size.
  • Pockets – 1/2 yd. – Contrast
  • Drapery weights – 8
  • Medium rickrack – 1 pkg.
  • 3/4" Velcro™ – 3"
  • Sewing machine
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Disappearing ink pen
  • Clear plastic ruler

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Measure the length and width of the table. Determine the size of the drop you want, double that amount plus 1" for hems. Add that amount to the length and width. The length will determine the yardage needed. For instance, a 24"x48" table with a 12" drop will require fabric approximately 49" x 73", which translates to 2-1/8 yds. If the table is very wide, double the amount of fabric.
  2. To make the pockets, cut 4 squares 8"x8"on a diagonal. With wrong sides together, fold the squares in half to make a triangle and press.
  3. Stitch the rickrack to the back side of each pocket along the pressed edge. Cut the Velcro into 4 – 3/4" pieces. Stitch the soft side of each Velcro™ piece just below the rickrack to the center back of each pocket.
  4. Place the triangle pockets on the corners of the tablecloth and mark where the rough side of the Velcro should go. Stitch the rough side of each piece of Velcro to each mark.
  5. Stitch each triangle to the right side of the tablecloth corners lining up the raw edges and stitch along the two raw edges of each corner.
  6. Use a double fold hem along the edges of the tablecloth.
  7. Insert 2 weights in each corner.
  1. LARGE TABLES:Follow step #1 but you will need to double the yardage.
  2. Cut the fabric into 2 equal pieces. For example if you needed 6 yards cut the fabric into 2- 3 Yd. pieces. Set aside one of the pieces to use for the center of the tablecloth.
  3. Cut the second piece of fabric in half lengthwise. (Ex. 2 – 3 yds. x 29" pieces.) These are the tablecloth sides.
  4. With right sides together, stitch 1 side piece from Step 10 to the tablecloth center, along the long edges. Repeat with the second side piece on the opposite center piece.
  5. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise on a flat surface, lining up the seams. Measure and mark from the fold, across the fabric, 1/2 the width you want your table cloth to be. Cut along your markings through both layers. Open out tablecloth and press.
  6. Follow step # 2 through # 7 to finish the tablecloth.
