To sew a tablecloth, is a very easy sewing project. The hardest
part is knowing how big you want the finished tablecloth to be.
You will need to measure your table and add 15 inches on the width
and length. If you'd like it to hang longer than a normal
tablecloth, such as to the floor, measure the distance from the
floor up and over the table and back down. This is common
when adding a tablecloth to small round tables or end tables. Most
fabric comes 45 inches wide so it is easiest to measure the number
of yards or feet long you'd like the table linen and not worry
about the width.
Now that you have your measurements cut your fabric
to size if needed. All you need to do to finish your tablecloth is
to hem the edges. Turn edges 1/2 inch and 1/2 inch again, pin in
place. Continue on all sides. Sew pulling out the pins as you go.
You can sew holiday tablecloths by shopping for holiday fabric
and creating a lot of fun designs and looks for your table.
