This is the second time I've made a fitted vinyl tablecloth for our kitchen table. The first one was red/white polkadot (I loved it), but the kids got adventurous with puncturing the tablecloth with fork prines and knife points. I took it off months ago and threw it away. Since then, I've wanted to make another one, but I just needed some vinyl. Plus, you just can't find fitted tablecloths for a 54x54 square table!
Today, I was browsing through a store and found some black/white damask for less than 3 dollars a yard. So I bought 5 yards (which was more than I needed but I hate being short the fabric needed for a project). I came home and within an hour or so, had a new tablecloth. (I chose a red trim because I have lots of roosters in my kitchen)
It's fun! I like it, and so does everyone else. Oh, and you better bet that I threatened whoever might want to be 'puncture' happy with severe punishments if they played knives with my new tablecloth!
