Step 2: First Cut the Top.

Drape the fabric you want to use for the top over the table. Pin or tape the fabric to the tabletop.

Now, using the bottom of the tabletop (the bottom of the metal bar under the tabletop, to be precise) as a guide, pull the fabric down slightly and cut all the way around. Follow the curves at the edges of the table closely - they need to be clearly curved, it will help with sewing later!

The pictures explain this better.

You could also lay the fabric flat on the floor, place the table on top and trace around, but that seemed like lots more work.
<p>Great instructions! I made a nice bright purple table cover for craft fairs with a removable white top to cover the ropes when I get a banner. Thanks for posting this!</p>
<p>The only thing I would add, loops to catch the legs at the hemline to keep the cloth from flying up if the wind catches it.</p>
<p>Where were you about 3 months ago; with these instructions? I have a 4 foot table and made a cover using matching top cover and sides. I used Velcro and did a complete wrap, because sometimes I turn it sideways.</p>
<p>Your instructions were so, so helpful! I do my first craft show next month and I'm scrambling to get everything ready...I actually have to make three table covers. Just finished the first one, and it turned out wonderfully! Thanks so much!</p>
i'm not quite ready to start craft fairs, but when i do this instructable will be very helpful. it looks great and i imagine its a lot more secure and easy to set up than a large rectangular table cloth would be.
I absolutely love this!!! My husband is a horsetrainer. To buy a professional one with your bussiness logo on it ,it costs $200+ so this is perfect until we can get the bussiness going and this looks great. It is also ideal to have these for the clinics .Heck even yard sales. Thank you so much for sharing.
