Table cloth for picnic

A couple years ago, while strolling in wal-mart, I decided to check out the fabric section. Some of you may think, "What?!Fabric from Wal-mart?". Well, if I can smell fabrics, I have to see what they got in order to satisfiy my curiosity and besides, you never know what you will find.

I looked around but didn't see anything, then at the doller section, cute fabric caught my eyes! It looked like something Cath Kidston would design. Better yet, it was only one doller a yard! I bought the whole bolt which came to five dollers and went home happy.

Since it wasn't 100% cotton, I didn't want to combine it in to a quilt. Today a whim, I decided to make a table cloth. Maybe, it was such a nice day today, it reminded me of picnics we are going to have this spring and summer.



Once I have decided what to do, it took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. I am pretty happy about the results. I have more of this fabrics left over, does anyone have any good ideas of what I should do with it?

  3. After you send some to Vanessa and some to me, use the rest to make napkins to go with the tablecloth.

  5. I love the tablecloth. We should do a tea party with the girls one of these days before the older kids get out of school!
