NEW TABLE CLOTH
Hello dear friends....
I was bit busy from last month or so and that's why
my weekly posts are also bit delayed as per normal routine..
First because of Ramadan (month of fasting) and than
the busy schedule of Eid...
Eid ul Fitar is the gift from God for all those
who fast the whole month only on the name of God...
Its a religious festival and continues three days...
On this Eid I want to make some changes in my dining room...
like I stitched a new table cloth and a runner for my buffet table..
The tablecloth is in five pieces, the basic upper portion
and four sides which I stitched separately...
Here is a closer look of the side penal
I used these four fabric in my project...
What you need is
1. First you measure the top of your table and
cut the fabric with seam allowance
2. Than cut the four hanging side panel of your desired length
( I used the same checked fabric for both, choice is yours)
3. You need to cut four stripes of 2"
a. of a floral print
b. matching plain colour
These stripes are of the same size of
your hanging side panels...
Now start stitching ...
Take the one hanging side panel and lay your two stripes
of floral and plain fabric on it in the above sequence
Here you can understand easily that how I arranged them
on the bottom the hanging panel
than the floral fabric
and than the plain colour fabric
Stitched theses three pieces
Now its look like this...
Fold the open edges of both the fabric
with your hand to get a crease
Now fold the orange fabric neatly to the wrong side of the
table cloth to get a little piping touch at the end
Iron them to settle the fabric neatly ...
Now stitched and secure both the the fabric with
the same seam as shown above
Prepare all the four hanging sides of the
table in the same manner
Now close the side ends like this
Now it is the turn to attach all four sided to the
main top part of the table cloth
Stitched corner to corner the prepared hanging panel
to the top part of the table cloth ...
The corners look like this
Here you can clearly see that how the hanging panels
are attached to the top of the tablecloth...
I used a bias tape piping for a bow
to secure both the corners...
Aaaahaaaa ... DONEEEEE
