I can't get enough of these super easy table cloths. I love oilcloth. I love the bright patterns and slick texture. I love how easily they wipe clean. I don't love the fact that they're made with PVC, but I'm hoping limited exposure isn't a big deal!
So here is my pile of tablecloths. I made three of them for Audrey's first birthday party (shared with her cousin Kate): The red polka dot, the red pears & apples, and the yellow strawberry. I just made the acqua cherry with oilcloth I purchased for Audrey's preschool bag. The tablecloths are LONG (3 yards each!) to fit our long patio table and they are perfect for picnic tables in the park.
Table Cloth/ Splat mat
- Yardage: 3 yards for picnic table length; 1 ½ yards to cut to 47” square; or any desired length…
- Notions: Jumbo rick rack (5/8” wide; 1 ¼” from zig to zag) (5 ½ yards for 45” square; 9 yards for 3 yard cloth)
- How to: Cut tablecloth/splat mat to desired length (for 47” square, fold on diagonal and trim to square) and edge with rick rack (position so rick rack is centered on the edge and top stitch close to edge).
