Sew a Tablecloth

tablecloth sewing

Sewing a tablecloth is an 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.
