Step 5: Home Made Table Cloth And Napkins
Determine the size you want. I made mine 45" X 45" 1 from decorator fabric and one from lining
This makes a reversible table cloth. You could use a Christmas print on one side and a Valentine's print on the other side .
Wash, dry, and iron fabric before sewing.
Place the right sides together and line up the 2 pieces.
Pin both fabrics together if you need to keep them secure.
Sew around all 4 sides using a 1/2 " seam allowance and leave an opening about 10 inches to turn the table cloth right side out.
Turn the tablecloth right side out.
Using the point of the scissors and a sewing pin carefully poke the points outward.
Machine stitch all the way around again for a nice finished hem.
Use the no sew method:
Follow the above directions up to the sewing part then:
Using the hemming tape place the tape between the 2 fabrics and pin into place.
Then iron according to the directions on the tape.
Turn the table cloth right side out and poke out the points with the scissor points.
You make the napkins the same way except of course you make them much smaller.
A good size napkin is: 18" X 18".
