Simple Tablecloth

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....
