Call Me Old Fashioned...

I love tablecloths.

I don't mean those fancy, "don't spill anything on it or I'll have to kill you" kind either. Just the every day, casual kind.


I'm not one for vinyl though. As a kid I remember my arms stickin' to it in the summer.
Instead I prefer a poly/cotton blend. They look pretty and clean up nicely.
But man are they hard to find! Unless you're looking for a boring, plain basket weave design in colors you wouldn't think of using. Then you're in luck. **giggle*


I've been doing a little computer screen window shopping...


Lace is a favorite of mine.

Can't go wrong with a stripe.

Plaid is perfect.

My whimsical side adores polka dots!
Eh I know it's vinyl, but it's still fun.

Anything with flowers makes me smile. ♥

I'm in need of a 90" square one. But they are impossible to find with any kind of design. Maybe I could make one myself?

Well, duh. You dingaling, the BEST table cloths are the ones you make. I have most of the ones that my Grandma made. I'll check the sizes on them and see if any are big enough. Most of her's were for the kitchen table and it was pretty small. Me...I'm a vinyl, wipe it off kind of tablecloth gal. Doin up a table cloth, just isn't my idea of fun. (Doin up means washing and drying, BTW)

I love tablecloths also. I've been making them for years. I find fabric in the decorative/home section on a bolt in JoAnns. They last for a long time.

Tablecloths seem to have gone the way of decent dishclothes. If you have a sewing machine and the skill, why not buy some material you like and run up one or two? Sez me who can just about do a hem. LOL!
