Making a tablecloth out of an errrrrrrr..... tablecloth?
I had a major dilemma over the long weekend (because craft is really truly important you know)....
I needed to whip up a super-quick no fuss fitted tablecloth, to fit over the coffee table that sits under my cabinet at Big House Collective.
I stood in front of my fabric stash for a while, and then glanced at the stack of vintage tablecloths and had one of those AHA moments (with apologies to all the Oprah fans in the audience).
Why not use a tablecloth to make a tablecloth... intelligent yes?
It's currently being modelled by a table which is completely the wrong size, but I hope you get the basic idea.
After I was all finished, I was then hit with a second dilemma, initiated by my hoarding gene.
There were small offcuts.... of vintage tablecloth.... I couldn't possibly throw them away....
So the coffee table now has a matching sunnies case.... just in case it's sunny?
