Here are the things that you’ll need:
1. Measure and cut your face fabric
Figure out how much length of fabric you want to hang off at the sides and make sure to add an inch for the 1/2″ seam allowance. Then take your pencil and start marking. For the width, you need to unfold your fabric and do the same process. Refer to the video for the detailed way of doing it.
Cut it using your scissors, following the pencil markings.
2. Measure and cut your lining
Do the exact process of measurement you’ll do with your face fabric, (refer to Step 1).
Follow the pencil markings.
3. Pin the face fabric and the lining together
Put the pretty side of your face fabric down on the lining, then pin it. Be sure the pin goes through both face fabric and the lining, 2-3 inches apart, pinning all the way around the square, but make sure to leave a space open for turning the fabric inside out after the whole process.
4. Sew both fabrics
Continue to sew all the way around the square with a 1/2″ in seam, while pulling out the pins as you go!
5. Turn the sewn fabric inside out
Find the opening and gently pull it through.
6. Iron the tablecloth and pin the open side
- Iron all the way around.
- Ironing the opening should be done last.
- Pin it!
7. Close the open side of the fabric
- Change the thread with one with the same color as the face fabric.
- Start sewing and pull the pin as it goes.
