When my granny passed away, I got her old card table. This thing is pretty rickety, but I love that it's all wood. I use it mostly in my craft room, but have pulled out for parties and such.
I have been wanting a tablecloth for it, but it's not easy to find one that fits a card table. So, I decided to make one myself. I got this panel at Jo-Anne's on clearance for $3/yard.
I love the little birdie pattern. I knew it would be a little small, so I also got some yellow plaid material on clearance as well for $2/yard.
I cut 4 strips of the yellow material, 7 inches wide and the length of the material.
I pinned and sewed two down either side of the panel.
Then I did the same along the top and bottom.
To finish the edges instead of hemming them, I just cut them with my pinking shears. I may go back eventually and hem them, but for now it is ok.
And here it is on the table....
